Moved- Yes, Coloradia
Moved from ID Request.

The late season adult points in the direction of Coloradia pandora davisi. Nice series

The caterpillar makes us think Coloradia
and the adult of one looks pretty good

Maury should be able to be more certain.

 
Thanks for the ID
The caterpillars are so variable, I would not have thought that this caterpillar went with this moth-but I reared it so I knew it must be so.
