a caterpillar about the size of my little finger with yellow warts, lying near heather
No interactions present.
A final instar Emperor moth caterpillar, which is why it's green and alone - earlier instars are gregarious, and the first couple are black with orange flashing - they look remarkably different, more like a Footman larva than older siblings like this one!
