Thanks. Yes, I saw that but
Thanks. Yes, I saw that but I wasn't sure since some had the red markings. Maybe that comes at a later instar? It was only about an inch or so long. I did have a sighting of an adult at the lights in mid-may but not since.

 
Markings...
The red markings are common, but they do not always appear. See here for example.
