green caterpillar - large

Observed: 18th August 2011 By: goforitgirlgoforitgirl’s reputation in Invertebratesgoforitgirl’s reputation in Invertebrates

this large green caterpillar was attached to the underside of a large leaf of a self seeded annual poppy - as soon as the leaf was touched the caterpillar stuck out its body at an angle away from the leaf and became motionless in this position for several minutes. It appears to have a thin white line down its side and a few small white spots??
