Caterpillars by torchlight

Searching at Caswell Bay on Wednesday night, 30th Jan., on the cliffs where Devonshire Wainscot occurs produced these two. The white dorsal stripe looks much like Barry's Square-spot Rustic. The green one has distinctive black marks either side of the last abdominal segment. Both are about 25mm and I will try growing them on, but if anyone has id suggestions do say! Both on the fine grass shown.

  1. Square-spot (or Six-striped) Rustic and Angle Shades are my suspicions, but best reared on to be sure.
