Found these guys munching on some leaves. They are about 1-2mm wide and 10-15mm long, changing as they stretch out to move. They are quite active and secret silk when handled. There are 3 pairs of pointy front legs then a gap and 4 pairs of stumpy/sucker type rear legs. They seem black from a distance but look a little purple in places close up.
