Identity



I can use some help identifying this caterpillar...


It's sitting on Salix exigua (narrow leaf willow). Underneath are my tomato plants.
It's no tobacco hornworm because the colour of the tail isn't red
It's no tomato hornworm because it's tail isn't black
Lime hawk moth? Don't think so.



My final guess: it's Smerinthus ocellatus (eyed hawk-moth, Pauwoogpijlstaart)
