Another Micro ID

Im sure this is probably obvious but I've been looking at it too much and gone moth blind! Please help!

Also had a Poplar Kitten lay me some eggs and these amazing looking caterpillars have hatched, looking forward to rearing these!

  1. It looks to me like a Bactra species, Darren, but without any obvious markings it would need chopping to be certain of the ID. Bactra lancealana quite often has very plain forms like this.

    Smart larvae, aren't they?! Somewhat prettier than my Puss Moth caterpillars which emerged a couple of days ago. They look exactly the same but are uniformly black.

  2. Thank you Dave, I did look at that, but then looked at the Eucosmas and thought it must be one of them.
