At first glance I thought the Buff-Tip moth caterpillars (they are poisonous and have an unpleasant smell!). I'm not sure if they have enough black on them though...............hopefully someone more knowledgeable will be along soon!! Smile

I really like how you've isolated and captured them!

I'm with Karen in saying they're Buff-tip moth larvae, probably judging by the size 4th or 5th instar (moult). Good find.....

Super capture of this huge group.

Not sure of the species but I think the collective noun for this bunch should be A Wriggle!
