Caterpillar inside rolled eggplant leaf

Caterpillar inside rolled eggplant leaf
Boca Raton, Palm Beach County, Florida, USA
November 29, 2008
Size: approx 1 inch
I found this specimen on a cut young oriental eggplant leaf which the caterpillar had rolled one side presumably to shelter from the sun.

Moved

Did a search here on eggplant
and found this guy and a moth called an "eggplant leafroller"!! See here. Wish we knew enough to say that's what it is. :(
