Doubtless Wall Brown.

I couldn't understand why I was so confused with the larva from Thursday with the experience I've had over several years studying this species. Another trip on site today I found a different larva that was without any doubt a Wall Brown. The duller green and the lack of the dark dorsal stripe, which was the main reason for my confusion makes me understand why I thought the other one may have been a Speckled Wood. The weather today also helped to obtain much better photos of it.
