Willow Beauty larva?

I think this is a Willow Beauty larva, it was found crawling up our garage yesterday. Length is approx. 35mm.


  1. You may be correct but I'm not sure about this, Nigel! I can't offer another suggestion but the pictures on Reg Fry's ukleps early stages website suggest that the markings on the head should look rather different, with the front face an obviously darker shade to the rest of the head.

  2. Hi Dave, thanks for looking. I've gone through Jim Porter's book and Reg Fry's site quite a few times and, although it's very close, I'm not totally sure it's a Willow Beauty.
