Hi all,
Some moth caterpillars from last year and this. Possible Fox moth? The green one....not sure. And the wooly bear type....does not resemble Garden Tiger...however...I would appreciate any help on these guys.

Thanks, Iain.
Found on heather moorland plantation edge in October 2009.

Hi Iain

The first is Fox moth as you suggest. The second looks like Ruby Tiger. The third I'm not sure, but might be one of the Orthosia species.
