Caterpillar ID?

  1. Found this guy munching on what I think is an Azela. Location is Maine. I don't see anything like it in my Moths and Butterflies field guides and no luck so far with websites.
    Head is red, with two black "antennae". Tufts of white in a "mohawk" like pattern along the back. Another black "antenna" appendage at the rear. Yellow and black striped body with a couple of red dots towards the rear end.
    Quite striking. About 3-4cm long.
  2. Thanks! Looks like that's the one.
