Green caterpillar found (accidentally) deep in the moorland grasses. Suggestions welcomed.
No interactions present.
The markings certainly look good for it, not a larva I am familiar with (either species) so I dont know about green variation but having looked in ukleps I think you are probably correct based on markings?
I always feel so many of these noctuid cats are confusable, a difficult group.
Thanks - I'm glad I've left it to people with more expertise to sort out. I'm just sorry I didn't get you a better picture, but i didn't want to disturb it any more than I already had.
