Your letter to the bugman: I found this pita pocket squirming it’s way along the windshield of my van. Never have I seen anything like it! Please help. I saw it the first part of October I posted several photos to show its movement

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.
