Beutenmueller's Slug Moth Caterpillar - Isochaetes beutenmuelleri

Beutenmueller's Slug Moth Caterpillar - Isochaetes beutenmuelleri
Roswell, Fulton County, Georgia, USA
September 11, 2004
Size: 10-15mm
I saw this little caterpillar feeding on what I think is alder. He was small, around 10-15mm or so. It's a slug caterpillar but I'm not sure about the species.

Mystery Solved
James Adams from Georgia Lepidoptera identified this as Isochaetes beutenmuelleri.

Isa ?
will this grow up to be Isa

 
That's my best guess too
I had wondered whether it might be an immature form. That's a good possibility.
