Speckled Green Fruitworm?

Side View
On the Speckled Green Fruitworm, the spiracular stripe runs ABOVE the spiracles on A1-A7 and BELOW the spiracles on T1 and A8, and it is especially strong on A7-A10. The spiracles are pale with a dark rim. It's just tough for me to tell about the spiracular stripe from this particular photo.
