Identification of larvae over the net (without a picture) is very
difficult. If you are after a good caterpillar book you might think
about Jim Porter's new book "Caterpillars of the British Isles" -
available through NHBS etc. It is about £35 (I think) but it is about
the most definitive book on the subject.
Hope that helps
