    Caterpillar ID

    Just found a load of these little buggers destroying my copper beech trees. None on the green beech or other hedge trees. Any ideas what they are? Closest I can find is the
    black veined white

    unless you can prove it beyond all reasonable doubt, it wasn't me. If you can prove it then you must be mistaken

    Thanks for that, I thought it strange as the black veined white is listed as extinct in Britain.
    Do you know if these bite or cause any other irritation as my little girl wants to collect & keep some to watch them turn into moths

    They should be fine, they may devastate your cooper beach.
