Snails a possibility, but there are also parsley-specific caterpillars. They are black and green banded. The ones I get mostly seem to leave bare stems. Check daily. They can get over an inch, but look for tiny black things on the leaves. Larger ones can be on stems under the leaves. They are not exclusively nocturnal, though they may keep eating 'round the clock.
