Hi ABK and DD,

There is a very distinctive forked structure on the forward dorsal surface of this larva which isnt depicted on any of the Dot Moth larvae in ukleps. I havent been able to find the same structure on any other larvae in ukleps but thats not to say it isnt in there somewhere. A couple of these larvae have appeared on the site recently but I'm not sure they are Dot Moth going by appearances?
