Green Moth - Parasa chloris

Green Moth - Parasa chloris
Auburn, Lee County, Alabama, USA
March 14, 2008
I think this is the moth that starts out as a saddleback caterpillar but I'm not sure.

Moved from Moths.

Not an ID
But maybe something like Smaller Parasa - Hodges#4698 (Parasa chloris)

But I don't know how to differentiate from Stinging Rose Caterpillar Moth (Parasa indetermina)

Smaller Parasa - Hodges#4698 (Parasa chloris)
This is Smaller Parasa I am fairly sure. The amount of green would be more extensive in Stinging Rose, also there would be a dark brown patch in the lighter brown outer margin according to Covell's guide.
