Caterpillar on goat's rue (Tephrosia virginiana)

Caterpillar on goat's rue (Tephrosia virginiana)
Weaver Dunes, Wabasha County, Minnesota, USA
August 24, 2013
I came upon this caterpillar in 2010 on goat's rue (Tephrosia virginiana) at Weaver Dunes ; MJ Hatfield and I searched for it in the same location in 2013 and relocated it (pictured here), once again on goat's rue. If MJ and I find it again, hopefully one of us will be able to get a more in-focus close-up.

Moved from Moths.

Moving
to Pyralidae for now based on resemblance to caterpillars in genus Pococera.
