Lauren Guttierez asked for an id for this moth she has been seeing in the limestone forests. This is probably a geometrid in the genus Eumelea, probably Eumelea ludovicata.
Excellent color images off the last caterpillar stage, the pupa, and adult of Eumelea ludovicata can be found in Leong and Low 2010.
According to the HOST database, larval host plants for Eumelea include Macaranga (Euphorbiaceae), Mallotus (Euphorbiaceae), and Ellataria (Zingiberaceae).
