Hello, and thank you for ID-ing that ground spider!
So today I have a caterpillar found in 10/20/13.

Dear Cicada Lover,
This request has been on our back burner because we did some research but we were not successful in determining an identification. This caterpillar really reminds us of a Hooded Owlet Moth Caterpillar from the genus Cucullia, but we could not find any matching images on BugGuide. We still believe it is a member of the Owlet Moth family Noctuidae. Perhaps one of our readers will have more luck with an identification.
