This caterpillar was discovered in our garden after pulling up some ivy. We've had it in a pot (with some ivy leaves & lettuce) for a couple of days for the kids to take to school, but we've no idea what sort of butterfly / moth it's likely to turn into. Help please

Thanks Debbie, but that seems

Thanks Debbie, but that seems to have a spiral-effect mottling, which our one doesn't have - it's a very smooth caterpillar
