that is such a striking image - I will take your word for it on the identification. I have taught about Biston betularia for 34 years and wouldn't have a clue what the caterpillar looks like! Kettlewell made it famous as an example of adaptation that might lead to evolution - but I guess you know all that!!!
All the best for 2011
