Insect Images is a non-profit organization. They are located at http://www.insectimages.org

If you send the photos by mail to them, I am sure they will identify it for you. I took the liberty of searching their site, and could not find anything that looked remotely like your specimin.

As a caracteristic, this is the cuterpilar. Did you see the ventral view? if you saw Chochet (the bottom with black teeth around) ...this will be a beatiful buttefie in the future

haha that would be possible " a new species" but normally to identified the butterfies we use the adult one. You just look after it then when it become the butterfy you will know...perhavs you can name it :)

I can't really make out how big the picture is because there are no objects in focus to base a comparison on, but I'm assuming it's a caterpillar. It looks similar to a 'spitfire' caterpillar that we have in Australia...
