Tried and failed to name this one!

Not that good with caterpillars but have you looked at Scarce Footman Eilema complana?
Wildlife of Assynt
...Les, that looks similar! Closer than I've got so far! Will see if anyone else agrees or offers alternatives!
My first thought was a Footman, but it doesn't match any of the British species. Not I think a Scarce Footman, which I am very familiar with. Some larvae look quite different in early instars. Can you give an indication of size?
...Michael; don't have internet access at weekends! It was around 2 to 2.5 cm long!
Wow!! A new one for me then! Superb!
Thanks ever so much!
