Caterpillar on Cyclamen

I spotted this little looper caterpillar in a potted plant of Cyclamen purpurascens in a cool greenhouse. Probably a coincidence that it resembles the bud stalks so closely. It looks as though it may have eaten a hole in one of the buds but, so far, I have not found any moth species that favours cyclamen. Does anyone know what it might be?
