Unexciting caterpillar

I have only run the light a few times since last posting, adding Early Grey to my slowly-expanding year list. But this caterpillar or grub joined me in the garden and, needless to say, is beyond my powers of ID.  The thing which looks like a telescope is a felt-tip pen which I hope gives some idea of scale.  Many thanks for any help and meanwhile, hoping for warmer nights.  Martin Wainwright, Thrupp, Oxon


  1. Looks like one of the marbled minors

  2. Many thanks. I'm afraid I hadn't the patience to keep it to rear, but perhaps I will meet it as a moth later in the year. Much appreciated, M
