Actually, now i see the strip

Actually, now i see the strip of privet hawkmoth caterpillars, I think that my ID is wrong. I'm sure the correct ID will be offered shortly by someone else though.

Oh, and welcome to iSpot! We normally see the world right-way-up, though sometimes sideways!

Thanks, David. We are going to update our version of the species dictionary and this should hopefully correct this kind of error.
