Ninebark leaves and a visitor

I didn't see the larva until I uploaded this to my computer. Not sure what it is, but Dr Tallamy's list (udel.edu/~dtallamy/ - select "Current Projects") shows that larvae from 41 species of lepidoptera feed on the native ninebark. Of course that alone makes the ninebark a desirable shrub for one's yard.
