I found this "inchworm" on a leaf of the Heptacodium miconioides - Family Caprifoliaceae. Can anyone identify this larva?

There always seems to be confusion on these,
as you can see here, between Cyclophora pendulinaria and Pleuroprucha insulsaria

Then throw in a little Eupethecia too! Ouch! Where's the geometrid expert when we need one?!

 
wow!
I think that we might be looking at Pleuroprucha insulsaria when comparing the dorsal view with others on that page. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I've placed the critter in my butterfly cage - hopefully it will transform into its pupa stage in captivity ...
