puzzling

This looks distinctive, but I can't place it (beyond it being a moth caterpillar). Could you edit the observation (click on the "edit" tab, above) and link it to the invertebrates group, where more poeple may see it?

Miller

Thanks for that charlieb, I didn't know Miller's changed like that, but now you've pointed me in the right direction there is a similar larva shown on Reg Fry's website:

(scroll down the list to find Miller, and then scroll down the page to find the pre-pupal caterpillar)
