Pretty hard not to believe it is actually a caterpillar?! This is tha larva of the Elm Sawfly, the largest north american sawfly. The larva is yellowish-white with a black strip on the back. It curls at rest. Overwinter in cocoons.
Not considered a forestry problem, but can defoliate shade/ornamental elms and willows
