Can anyone identity this insect in my living room. It is about 2cm long with a weird thing on his back.
I think that’s one of the types of Tussock Moth caterpillars.
is good at these.

Looks like a vapourer moth (Rusty Tussock) caterpillar to me, it’s probably looking to pupate, just pop it outside at the bottom of a tree
Oh thank you. He/she is inside a jar now, so I am off immediately to the garden. Thank you. You are all marvellous, what knowledge!!
