Yes, Chanty180, you are right. Chamberwell Beauty is the common name in UK.

Hi! I think this is the caterpillar of a very beautiful butterfly. In German it is called " Trauermantel", in English they seem to be called "Camberwell beauty". The scientific name would be "Nymphalis antiopa". Greetings from Germany
