Palthis angulalis vs. asopialis
I reared this caterpillar and unless I am mistaken it is Palthis angulalis. I should have posted the adult with the cat.

 
Palthis angulalis
Both species of Palthis feed on the same plants. This is a Palthis angulalis. Notice the difference in the reniforn spots on Mark Dreiling's DNA specimens. The Faint-spotted has a crescent with a spot below, while the Dark-spotted is solid.
