Automeris Moth

This caterpillar was spotted crawling across our steps, a fair distance from any plant. It looks like it’s a moth in the genus Automeris, but I haven’t been able to narrow it down to a particular species. The photo was taken on November 11, 2013, in Cuernavaca Mexico, at an altitude of 1580 metres.
