A question ;
Why are some larvae now feeding voraciously while others are already immobile, dark in colour & located in odd places such as leaf - veins near the leaf base ?
Are the non - feeders doomed or are they going into hibernation at a sensibly early date ?
Puzzled of Dorset.

Wild larvae develop, colour up and enter hibernation at different speeds. They go into hibernation over the period of 3-4weeks.
