What's the caterpillar?

From Sarah:
I put my moth trap out last night and, although there were no moths in it this morning, there was this larva on the side. Could you help me with an ID please. I have Jim Porter's Caterpillars of the British Isles and I think the description of the Angle shades matches it. However I could be completely on the wrong track.

  1. Looks possible. Some good photos on http://www.ukleps.org/CommNamesAlphabetical.html

    I think Angle Shades earlier instars are green with broken white line down the back.
