micro-moth?

This has the look of a micro-moth caterpillar, but it's not one I recognise, and Honesty is not listed as a foodplant for any micros on the DBIF:
http://www.brc.ac.uk/DBIF/hostsresults.aspx?hostid=3215

So I suppose it's probably one of the species that can feed on a whole range of plants, but I'm afraid I can't narrow it down.
