Geometrid larva on Whitebeam at night. No idea of ID - can anyone help?
No interactions present.
My first thought was Willow Beauty, but it doesn't look quite right for that - in particular there seem to be some protuberances on the segments immediately in front of the hind prolegs, which I didn't think Willow Beauty should have. I'm stuck!

Thanks, Martin. The only other near match I can find on UK Moths is Waved Umber - plenty of privet and lilac in the vicinity. I've seen Willow Beauty adults (but not Waved Umber) here.
