Tropical Fritillary Caterpillar

Tropical fritillary larva (Argynnis hyperbius, 斐豹蛱蝶). It seemed out of season, even during our current period of warmish winter but there it was crawling along. A distinctive caterpillar with its orange-red dorsal stripe and rows of first black spines and then pink spines with progressively smaller black tips.
