I found these caterpillars on Solomon's seal in East Yorkshire could you please tell me what they will turn into. (they could also be sawfly larvae. I can also get more pictures
It is, as you suspect, Solomon's seal sawfly, Phymatocera aterrima
This shows what the adults look like
If you are not careful, they will strip the entire plant bare.
I remember seeing these on Mum & Dad's plants at home when I was a nipper. ...When I could see them up close without hardly bending down!
