Description:

Can anyone ID this large caterpillar for me because I haven't had much luck? Meadow Brown is really just a guess.

Red Sword-Grass (Xylena vetusta)

Thanks Cathal, that does look a likely ID and certainly better than my stab in the dark.

Hi ar8922, Its a caterpillar

Hi ar8922,

Its a caterpillar I have seen a few times before but in your photos it is quite stretched out and thin looking but the colouration and size seem right as does the habitat.

Cathal.
