Gregarious Caterpillar feeding on Pipturus argenteus

Nancy Vander Velde brought me some caterpillars feeding on Pipturus argenteus in Agana, Guam for identification. These are almost certainly Hypolimnas anomala (Family Nymphalidae). See Butterflies of Micronesia [1] for more info on this species.
