Caterpillar on Echium vulgare - Ethmia bipunctella

Caterpillar on Echium vulgare - Ethmia bipunctella
Mer Bleue Conservation Area, Ottawa-Carleton, Ontario, Canada
September 1, 2012
I found this caterpillar on Echium vulgare and unfortunately could not get a shot of its head, so it may be impossible to ID this one. I thought at first the colour and pattern would be distinctive enough for identification, but I've been unsuccessful.

It looks like an Ethmia
and there is a Ethmia bipunctella - Viper's Bugloss Moth - Hodges#0986

 
Thank you...
for the identification.
