Well, Vasily, it's figured out rather weird. How could one read this "The only one, true S. lubricipeda is there: The rest of caterpillars aren't" like you meant the photo on this page not at

Meh, I hurriedly comment it yesterday so that seemed vague. Nothing's wrong: the photo I linked as an example is a 100% sure S. lubricipeda caterpillar, that's all.

Bah, there is also this stripe. Or what's wrong?

I've just got that link. Also, the same in a David Carter book, "Butterflies & Moths" Dorling Kindersley, London 1992 (a photo of a caterpillar what has this clearly seen red stripe).

The only one in the whole Internet?)

The only one, true S. lubricipeda is there: The rest of caterpillars aren't. Tomorrow will try to clear it up (out for a day).
