I hope that you can help me, for a bit of fun I’m going to enter the attached image in a nature photographic competition the guy responsible for entries at our Photographic Society is a bit harsh I just want to test him. Unfortunately we have to provide the name also in Latin.
Can you help
PS
These are grapes that we bought, hopefully the grapes and packaging will give an indication of size

Dear Mike,
This sure looks like the larva of an Owlet Moth in the family Noctuidae, and it would be fair to call it a Cutworm, but alas, we are not going to be able to provide you with the desired species or genus name.
