The Gonometa genus has some of the most spectacular Lappets on the planet. All species are large (especially the females), some are extra large with caterpillars growing over 20 cm long. The (probably) 15 species occur in sub-Saharan Africa.

The rearing can sometimes be disappointing. Many species feed on Fabaceae and some will only accept a limited number of plant species, which do not grow in the northern hemisphere. Especially when you get eggs in the winter it will not always be possible to get them to eat. But when they do ... it's going to be spectacular. Wear gloves tough. The Gonometa caterpillars  have thick and sharp hairs that easily get stuck in your skin.
