Tartan caterpillar

Tartan caterpillar

Observation - Tartan caterpillar - Global. Description: Yellow and black spiny caterpillar. Looks quite like Small Tortoiseshell - but also quite a bit like Scarlet Tiger (though I don't think there are white dots). Very fast moving, on dogwood - but loads of nettles very nearby.
