Thanks to Cathy Powers and Peter Marriott for identification.
Unknown larva. About 25mm long. No prolegs or claspers. Pale green body, dorso-ventrally flattened, some small tubercules covering, a strong white-cream line at lateral margin, tapered tail with two small pale cercii. Exploring eucalyptus leaves.
Possibly larva of a Spilosoma sp. moth. Feeding on a Senecio plants in the forest. Quite a few in the area. Five pairs of prolegs (non-jointed) and 3 pairs of true (jointed) legs near its head - Caterpillars only have 6 (true) legs like all insects!
