I believe you have found a Sawfly larva. Sawflies are a type of small, non-stinging wasp. Their larvae look a lot like caterpillars of butterflies and moths. Many are difficult to identify from photos (they apparently have not been well studied in some cases). If you know the host plant (what was it feeding on), that can help.
