Perfect Camouflage, Unidentified caterpillar, Hawkweed

Observation - Perfect Camouflage, Unidentified caterpillar, Hawkweed. Description: I only noticed this caterpillar because I was focusing in on a tiny hoverfly. I thought this caterpillar / larvae would be relatively easy to identify as it was perfectly camouflaged within species of hawkweed flower heads. Almost every other flower head

I only noticed this caterpillar because I was focusing in on a tiny hoverfly. I thought this caterpillar / larvae would be relatively easy to identify as it was perfectly camouflaged within species of hawkweed flower heads. Almost every other flower head had a caterpillar either curled up or feeding on the flower. Caterpillar was approx. 3mm x 20mm. Any ideas would be appreciated.
