Stinging Slug Caterpillar

Dear Vaughan,
You are correct that this is a Stinging Slug Caterpillar in the family Limacodidae.  This individual on iSpot looks very similar, but alas, it is only identified to the family level.  This individual on iSpot is not identified either.  We then located a posting on iSpot that looks very similar that is identified as
Stroter intermissa, but we have not been able to verify that elsewhere on the internet.
