Silver-spotted skipper caterpillar (Epargyreus clarus)

I found a bunch of these guys hanging out inside shelters they had made by pulling over the leaves of false indigo bushes (Amorpha fruticosa) and attaching them together loosely with strands of silk. They would periodically emerge from their shelters to feed on the leaves of their host plant.
