Caterpillar on Hound's Tongue - Gnophaela latipennis

Caterpillar on Hound's Tongue - Gnophaela latipennis
Redwood City, San Mateo County, California, USA
March 26, 2008
Size: 4 cm
Host plant is Cynoglossum grande.

Moved
Moved from Gnophaela.

Perhaps Gnophaela latipennis?
It seems almost identical to other Gnophaela caterpillar pictures here on bugguide. Cynoglossum grande is mentioned as a host plant here and the range here matches. This is the only species with matching range and host plant. Since its a new species for BG, I'll let someone else move it.
