Definitely a Lophocampa sp., but not Annulata. I am tending towards Lophocampa maroniensis, but for that I would need to see the color of the legs and head. There are a lot of different Lophocampa around and it is very hard to separate both, adults and caterpillars from each other. I would go with Lophocampa sp. as scientific name. With that we are on the safe side.
