Larva of? - Antaeotricha

Larva of? - Antaeotricha
Oak Ridge, Guilford County, North Carolina, USA
October 22, 2013
Size: ~15mm
This was hanging by a silk thread from a small cherry or persimmon tree in the woods, slowly making its way back up
and collecting its ball of silk. It wasn't making much progress so I put it on the trunk, where it could move faster.
It has 4 pairs of prolegs, a curiously broad head, and a few sparse hairs.

Hi, George.
How did you determine this ID? You may be right, but
the other specimens here on BG don't convince me.
Thanks.

 
Variety Of Factors
Head capsule pattern, dark shading in and around thoracic setal clusters, inconspicuous spiracles.

The shape and the head make us think Pococera
but we don't see this color pattern. Hmmm??? We'll keep looking

 
The head does look like this:

 
Thanks.
It was also rather flat.
