What plant was it living on?

It was in amongst the mixed lettuce leaves. No evidence of any munching, it was just settled in there behind a kind of web. We found another one in the leaves picked last night. What really struck me is how vivid the green part is. I tried gurgling images of green and white larvae but didn't come up with anything that looked at all like it.

Yes, I think the web was possibly the start of a cocoon. I couldn't get a closer picture as my phone doesn't focus at close quarters. It was approx 2.5cm (1 inch) long, if that's any help?
