Dear CC,
We are splitting your identification request into two distinct postings to better conform to our categorization.  Your first caterpillar, the Inchworm, is a Woolly Gray Spanworm,
Lycia ypsilon, which we quickly identified on BugGuide where it is noted:  “One of only a handful of brightly colored inchworms in the East.”  This is a new species for our archives.
