Unknown caterpillar 1

About 10mm long, yellow stripe down back with black protrusion 1/4 of the way down body from head. Has small red markings down the sides and is very hairy. Was found attached to the little cocoon like object (won't let go of it) on a rhubarb leaf. Any ideas?

Grey Dagger

It is possible that the caterpillar may have been parasitised and the cocoon belongs to this creature.
