Hi Mick, I have 2 very

Hi Mick,

I have 2 very similar ones from this Autumn. Lovely mottled caterpillars but I couldnt find a satisfactory ID and right at this stage I cant even remember the possibilities I found.

Just looking at it Angle Shades is a possibility, a young one of the brown type?

Hi Cathal, I really cant say.

Hi Cathal,
I really cant say. You probably have noted I have put a green one up based on the one in UKMoths. Please have a look at my comment on this topic here, love to hear what you have to say on this.

Mick, The 'here' link isn't

Mick,

The 'here' link isn't working for me right now. I did see the green Angle Shades and I think it is more than likely correct due to the diagonal markings and overall appearance?

I saw a few possibilities for the brown one this evening but its not a straightforward one and I fear there might be more than one potential candidate!

Cathal.
