    Oh isn't that a tomato-hornworm? I think the little white things may be parasitic wasp eggs.

    You are correct and in a day or two the caterpillar will be consumed but the wasp young. YES! another one gone.

    The horn indicates it's in the Sphinx moth family. IIRC, the tomato hornworm is more gray ....

    Bummer about the parasites....
    All the best,
