My friend Emmanuel Soto just sent me this picture through Facebook for an ID. He found it in his dog's mouth, assumes the dog got it from the Orchids garden. He explained how it went into its pupa stage and when it emerged it had some red and it was a moth.

Because it was a moth, i discarded it being a papilio.
My book guides at the moment are limited to North America, and it resembles the Tersa Sphinx Caterpillar, he says it does look like it in its chrysallis but we'd like to back up our id.

THANKS IN ADVANCE! :D
