Hi Steve,
Originally we thought this was a Leafy Spurge Hawkmoth Caterpillar, but on May 6 we found an identical caterpillar in our Mt. Washington California garden that we know is a White-Lined Sphinx, Hyles lineata. This is not a final instar caterpillar and this species has at least three different color morphs.
