This caterpillar is called Tinolius eburneigutta. I've only seen one other caterpillar with tassles like this one, and that was on a "paddle caterpillar" in Illinois, the juvenile version of the funerary dagger moth. Tinolius eburneigutta is also a moth, but although it's referred to as a "semi-looper" because of the way it walks, it isn't really a member of the Geometridae family of "looper" moths.

Heteronotus - An amazing ant mimic tree hopper  Heteronotus (Hemiptera - Membracidae) is a genus of Neotropical tree hoppers that seem to carry an ant or wasp on their backs. Technically this type of mimicry is called myrmecomorphy (they seem ants) and wasp mimicry (they seem wasps).  These forms originate from the modification of the pronotum, this is the first segment of the thorax, which is spectacularly developed like a helmet.
