Description:

One of three (possibly two) species of caterpillar found whilst gardening.
Found on the ground but associated with Stinging Nettle and/or Green Alkanet (also some bramble present).
Instinct says they are all moth species but as the great oracle Google reveals a lack of ID resource for caterpillars I have no sound basis for this. (Why does Collins butterfly guide not include caterpillars?)
May be the same as www.ispot.org.uk/node/253960 but a different instar.
