I found one exactly like this one but the stripe was blue all the body length.
It was feeding on willow in a garden at WEST PINCHBECK, lINCOLNSHIRE, ENGLAND, last year early summer. I photographed it and replaced it on the tree. I have not seen one before or since.

Just found this comment today, Saturday 28th July 2012, I live in Salisbury, Wiltshire, found the same type of Caterpillar, again, yellow with a blue stripe down the centre of it's back, on my Golden Willow tree in the garden. No idea what it is, but, took several pictures as a reference. Never seen this type before.

Thank you Nigel - so I wasn't dreaming!!
I have continued to look for another caterpillar without success and have searched the net and books for an identification - without success.
It's food plant seems to be Salix sp. But what is it?
HELP!!!! DOES ANYONE OUT THERE KNOW?
