Size: +/- 6 mm.

Could this be the caterpillar of the Indented Dichomeris Moth?
Other caterpillars also found in cluster of leaves at the tip of a goldenrod branch.

Moved from Unidentified Leaf Rollers and Tiers.
Thanks, every bit helps.

The D2 setae on abdominal segment 9 in this larva are on a common middorsal pinaculum, which says tortricid (I don't know which one). In gelechioids, e.g., Dichomeris, the D2s on A9 are separate.

Moved from Moths.
