I know this is a juvenile as had less than 4 coils..the older coils are brown but the newer coil is still green. I am unable to identify this further. Was found on farm track road so moved onto leaf at roadside.

Please move to invertebrates

I do not see how you can say it is C. hortensis as it is a juvenile.
Size might help to decide but we are not given the measurements.

Seeing more than your fair share and rearing a few of these (to adult), looking exactly as is in the photo, you seem to get a feel for them.

But as it says, likely but can't be certain. ;)

Regards Chris :)
