White-letter Hairstreak larva

I found this White-letter Hairstreak caterpillar feeding on Wych Elm at Hollins Hall Hotel, Baildon today.
I think it is almost full-grown with a length of 15-16mm so I should hopefully be able to keep it until it pupates with the possibility of an adult emerging in about a month.
