Tenthredinidae
?Pristiphora ?Arge
Maybe you have a clearer photo thoracic legs?

 
cropped closeup
I added 2 cropped photos

 
It looks like Argidae
but, unfortunately, the photo is not clear enough to say for sure or move on.
I think the photo should be posted in the Argidae section as a likely definition.

 
or other Genus
My wife found a comment on a similar larva that could be Pamphiliidae ?

 
Not Pamphiliidae
Pamphiliidae have no abdominal prolegs, but have long, well-visible cerci and antennae.
This larva has 6 (or 7?) pairs of abdominal prolegs.
The shape of the thoracic legs is closest to the Argidae family, but not clearly seen.
