You know you can have a look through the field guide on the website to try and get a bit closer. Click on species, then all insects, then butterflies, and in this case nymphs (which are most if not all of the brown ones) and scroll thru the photos till you find a match - easy, and quite fun (and a fantastic way to blow a few hours).

Thanks Jackie. I did browse through the posted photos and found other examples, by which time you had already identified it.
