Thanks for the identification. The caterpillar has now gone into its 3td instar. When looking through my Caterpillars of the Northeast I saw the entry for the Cecropia moth, but disregarded it because I thought my location made it unlikely. I live on a barrier island just north of Atlantic City NJ and 3 miles across the salt marshes. The light pollution from the casinos has banished true darkness, and I don't see any wheres near the moths I used to see.

Although after going to the links I remembered that i had a Cecropia cocoon on my Autumn Olive bushes. (Side note - back when I planted the Autumn Olives they were being recommended as good bushes to plant for the birds)
