without looking up caterpillars, among butterflies it could be:

Wild Indigo Duskywing (Erynnis baptisiae)
Clouded Sulphur (Colias philodice)
Little Yellow (Pyrisitia lisa)
Gray Hairstreak (Strymon melinus)
Eastern Tailed-Blue (Cupido comyntas / Everes comyntas)

I imagine there are some moths it could be also.
Many butterfly caterpillars spin webs to fold the leaves over for various reasons, like the one in your picture.
