A case of the Yp's - Part I

Already this year I have been lucky enough to find the early stages of four members of the Yponomeutid family, the first two of which are included here: Yponomeuta rorrella and Y. padella

Very pleased in particular with rorrella as this is the first time I've found this in the larval stage. This web was on Salix at Fowlmead CP near Deal, East Kent.
