Size: .75 inches
I found a few of these small larva feeding on our Rock Mallow, Pavonia lasiopetala, and was wondering if this is a skipper larvae and what species it may be.

sawfly larva
This looks like a sawfly larva, many pro legs.

Not thinking it's a Sawfly
Thanks for the help. The info I found indicates it to be a Mallow, or Hibiscus, Sawfly, Atomacera decepta. I appreciate the help.

Looks like it
