I don't often see caterpillars in the garden only on the veg leaves chomping at the brassicas.
. Can anyone tell me what this one is please?
I had that on my rose bush the other week - we identified it - I'll find the thread .... hold on ....
It's the caterpillar of the Vapourer Moth
Yes, found it - the Vapourer Moth
Strangely my caterpillar had two dark yellow spots and two bright yellow spots, but definitely a Vapourer all the same.
Vapourer - sounds like a genteel lady with the smelling salts on Downton
Thank you. You are all so clever.
Such an attractive caterpillar for a hum drum looking moth.
I like your description Dove as that will help register it in my brain.
