Definitely Unarmed Stick-insect

I collate all the records of the naturalised stick-insects, and can confirm you have imaged a fine green adult Unarmed Stick-insect. There are several small colonies in the Camborne/Redruth area, as well as many other parts of Cornwall.

There is more information here -
