Larvae Identification

Larvae Identification

This picture was sent in by a Garden Hotline Caller. They said they did not have any brassica plants but their neighbor does (thinking this little guy was some sort of looper) The caller said that it was just found in the grass by itself. They haven't seen any other worms in their yard. Any help identifying would be appreciated.

Sorry, not enough pixels here to move forward with an ID. It looks like it has more abdominal prolegs than a looper would have, so maybe one of the Noctuid cutworms??
