You did it perfect!! Is it the same caterpillar than the later one? If yes, you can add the corresponding common and scientific name as well.

I just sent some more. Hope these will help you. I'm new to this so hopefully I did it right:-)

Welcome to Project Noah! This is a Tussock Moth caterpillar. The light was quite bright, so that the important markings and colors are not fully visible. In this genus the color of the spots and stripes is very important for getting an ID. Do you have some another pictures of the same caterpillar, maybe from the side?
