I think that my I/D is correct but would appreciate feedback. The caterpillar was 25-30mm long.

ID comment

I can see why you went for the larvae of the White Satin Moth, but there are some differences and I think the Knot Grass is a better match.

Thank you very much. I think you are right but I did not have a picture of the Knot Grass larva.
