What is this?  a Pink Caterpillar

What is this? a Pink Caterpillar
Holcombe, Chippewa County, Wisconsin, USA
July 21, 2005
Size: Rolled up - quarter
Can someone help me identify this beautiful pink caterpillar?
What does it eat?
Thank you!

A sawfly larva but sure can't place this, even to family.

Moved from Sawflies.

Sawfly larva?
Our guess would be sawfly larva, lots of prolegs and a big head with a black eye. Check here. Do you know what plant it was feeding on? That would be very helpful?

looks like a cimbicid
