cat I d ?







Hi all, Found this larva at ramsden wood clough walsden 05 06 09,in a rocky gorge,its 31 mm long,and was on a grass stem,between patches of woodsage, in daylight,nearest i can find is black rustic on cat i d link,but it still dosnt look quite right,and larval stage is a bit behind for its size,i suppose bad weather in May might have something to do with it,or is it just another colour form of a common moth ! any info would be appreciated.all the best bri.

Hi Brian
Looks good for the brown form of Dark Rustic to me and the date ties in as well.
