Thank you! I think you are both right, Edwards Wasp Moth it is!

I would agree with Lymire edwardsii, I completely forgot about this one and obviously was too sceptic to make any suggestion. But it was 1 year ago! Maybe I was just too shy at this time ;-)...

I haven't seen any other caterpillars that look close to this one though. I still think it's L. edwardsii. It could just be the way the brightness of the photos show the color.

Yes, please, upload another shot of this one, since I am missing some orange hairs behind the head which I remember from Lymire edwardsii:
Perhaps it would be shown on this shot, otherwise I might be wrong with my guess. Anyway I think it is an Arctiidae moth caterpillar.

Please can you also upload the first photo here. Sometimes the first photo doesn't show if you start to add another photo before it is 100% downloaded & appearing on the screen.
