I was walking through Llandeilo today after an unsuccessful hunt for slow worms and I happened to catch sight of this small caterpillar feeding on an isolated dandelion clinging on to the pavement. I haven't got any of my books with pics of caterpillars in on me but I did a bit of google searching and it appears to be very similar to a scarlet tiger...can anyone confirm or deny this please? Either way, it might need me to go back and move it to a slightly more sustainable food source nearby...
