If Flapdoodle is still in the vicinity, perhaps he can ID this larva I've been stumped on for a couple of years. :-)

This appears to be a prepupa, a caterpillar getting ready to move on to the next stage of its life. I'm going to guess - and I want to stress guess, that it might be a notodontid in the genus Heterocampa...
