Seems to be a Litsea sp.
ls ID the plant taken at Shibpur Botanical Garden , Howrah , West Bengal: The characters are not clear. I think this is a larvae of Common Mime!If so the plant might belong to the family Lauraceae
yes ! it is Mime cat. .... I am searching it's host ... can you pls give me the name of some common plants belong to the family Lauraceae & available in Kolkata area / west bengal ?
There is one plant that always hosts Common mime at our farm back in Kerala is a species of Litsea. If you can send a picture of leaves (both upper and under surfaces) of the plant, I can try at least for the genus of the plant.
