Stinging Slug Caterpillar on Windshield

Dear S. Plante,
This is a Stinging Slug Caterpillar in the family Limacodidae.  Alas, the view from underneath, while interesting, is not ideal for species identification.  It might be a Skiff Moth Caterpillar, Prolimacodes badia, which is pictured on BugGuide.

Location: Rhode Island
