White-Marked Tussock Moth (Orygia leucostigma)

The tulip and the butterfly
Appear in gayer coats than I:
Let me be dressed fine as I will,
Flies, worms, and flowers exceed me still.
~Isaac Watts

I've been looking for an ID of this guy everywhere. People keep calling it an asp caterpillar but it is not. Thanks for posting the correct name on here.
