Hatterall Ridge

Searching for Silurian larvae last night with George, Russel and Clare Barclay on Hatterrall Ridge. Still cold at 4 degrees but there were just a few. Also others including both colour forms of Anomalous and this mystery larva. Presumably immature noctuid, about 20 mm long, eating bilberry. Any caterpillar experts out there?

  1. Dave Grundy thinks it might be an odd-looking True Lover's Knot larva (we found some of these on Bilberry on a previous survey).
