dc.description.abstractWe report the first case of envenomation by the billygoat plum stinging caterpillar, Thosea penthima Turner (Limacodidae). The sting, on the forearm, caused immediate burning pain and local wheal formation. Pain radiated up the arm and there was severe "crushing" chest pain lasting four hours. The local pain persisted for 10 hours and required opiate analgesia.en
