Description:

3.5cm moth caterpillar found on grass in sand dunes, south east Ireland. The brown line on the back may help ID, so far I havent found a match in ukleps and Ive looked virtually everything there. Any help much appreciated.

I can't find a match for this one either, other than that it is a noctuid moth, which doesn't help much, sorry!

I cant find it either Martin,

I cant find it either Martin, I was looking at Black Banded this evening but I'm not happy that its that, it might pop out at me in time if I look through ukleps often enough.
