One of three (possibly two) species of caterpillar found whilst gardening.

Found on the ground but associated with Stinging Nettle and/or Green Alkanet (also some bramble present).

Instinct says they are all moth species but as the great oracle Google reveals a lack of ID resource for caterpillars I have no sound basis for this. (Why does Collins butterfly guide not include caterpillars?)
