Another Pinkish caterpillar

Another Pinkish caterpillar
Atco, Camden County, New Jersey, USA
December 5, 2012
Size: 25mm?
Found under fallen leaves in grassy area. Maybe it was feeding fallen maple leaf...


Laci says no to Hemipachnobia,
and we didn't convince her on Orthodes detracta, pg 516, either :)
But that's the best we have. If you want we can just move it to subfamily or tribe.

Any Sundew around?
We're going to suggest to Laci that this might be Hemipachnobia monochromatea, pg 536
or maybe better as Orthodes detracta, pg 516

I checked both...
But I can't tell if it's good match or not...
There are no sundew, cranberry, blueberry, sheep laurel around... :(

Somewhat similar to...
Crimson Sallow, "Owlet Caterpillars of Eastern North America" p.456?
