1643 Saturnia pavonia (Emperor Moth)

1643 Saturnia pavonia (Emperor Moth)
The caterpillars of the UK's only Silk-moth are quite handsome animals, with their black circlets over their dark green bodies. There are a variety of colours to the hair tubercles, ranging from lilac-pink, to cream, or white. The black and dark green can sometimes merge patchily breaking up the usual pattern which is seen here.
