I Looked at All 108 Pages of BugGuide Caterpillars and Elsewhere - Panthea gigantea

I Looked at All 108 Pages of BugGuide Caterpillars and Elsewhere - Panthea gigantea
Prescott, Yavapai County, Arizona, USA
September 10, 2006
Size: 1 3/4 inches
And found no match. This image kinda shows the black "collar" and the orange tissue on either side of it.

Moved
Moved from Butterflies and Moths. Based on Franclemont images here

 
Well, I Just Have to Comment
Nine years! I love it! Thank you! Good bug!

Another thought from the caterpillar team
would be something near Panthea. Do you have any of those down there?

 
You May Be On Track
Panthea isn't very common here and in any case, there doesn't seem to be much information.

P. gigantea is most widespread but I could find no larva images.

P. apanthea has a record in northern Arizona but seems to be very rare.

P. judyae and P. greyi seem to occur in SE Arizona.

Wonder if it might be a freshly molted Halysidota
They have this general appearance, though we don't know which one would be so brown

We'll try to imagine what it might look like all fluffed out and see if we can come up with something.

 
108 Pages, Ha!
Those were the days! I guess its time to look around some more. Thanks for the lead.
