On the garden waste bin, probably from nettles or brambles - but no idea of ID
No interactions present.
Thanks nightfly - I've seen Hypena proboscidalis here.
If it is The Snout then its a 2nd generation one. It looks like it to me but then a few of these Hypena can look similar. Any indication of size, it might help a bit?
Buttoned Snout larval stage is June July and it has a white stripe along the outer edge of the dorsal area.
Beautiful Snout hasnt got the black dotted face as above and is specific to bilberry.
The proximity to nettles, the white line along the side, the proleg arrangement and the black dots on the head seem to suggest Hypena proboscidalis.
Bloxworth Snout larva also feeds on nettles but doesnt appear to have the white stripe along the length of the body at any stage of development.
The larva looks like it might be immature and may change appearance a bit as it develops.
Sorry, omitted size from observation: at a guess,12-15mm long. I've found Buttoned Snout here, too.
Quite small then, the black dotted head is the same as The Snout in ukleps....
