Green Caterpillar - Peridea angulosa Peridea angulosa


Unfortunately, lots of bright green caterpillars
difficult to ID from the underside of the thorax. The spots on the back, as best as we can see, might make it one of the Lithophane, but they are a difficult group with plenty of species.

New pic
Hi, I've added another view I had of the caterpillar.

thanks again!
