I am just wondering if this could be Dasychira grisefacta? I see a lot of clubbed shaped setae on the spiracles and I from what I have read D. vagans has very few.

I don't really know
You could be right since I don't know these things well as caterpillars. I read something about the doubled clubbed shaped setae (versus singles) as being an indicator, so I went with that. I am not certain.
