Attractive Caterpillar

Observation - Attractive Caterpillar - UK and Ireland. Description: I found this attractive caterpillar (length approx 2.5 - 3.0 cm) on the patio in my back garden earlier this afternoon. I've looked in my Caterpillars of the British Isles, and the closest I can find is the larva of the Buff-tip Moth.
