So I take it you have already reared this one then David

Looks like a small geometrid to me....

Seriously, though - all larvae should be reared and fully documented. This is the only way to gain the knowledge required to understand the species' ecology, and thus allow us to be in a position to conserve the plants needed by the larvae for the species' conservation.

Not 100% certain but, it IS a geometrid, feeding on Mac. tanarius.  Experience with similar genus and LFP strongly leads to my suggested conclusion--always considering the caveat that there should be no parasites present.
