Sallow Kitten (Furcula furcula) - 2nd instar caterpillar.

So pleased that I took a second glance at this leaf, at what looked like a gall sticking up. I think the ID is right, a few of the kitten moths look similar in the early instars. It's absolutely gorgeous little thing though, just about 10mm in length, at least before that awesome forked 'tail' that gives it the scientific name.
