Pretty sure I've put this fella/flicka in the right place. Even though it's a different colour. My daughters found it crawling across the road on their way home from school and rescued it from a ignomious death. After checking here and Googling, am betting that the colour difference is just because it was ready to pupate and that it was trekking out to try and get as far away as possible from its host plant so as not to be easy picking for predators.
