A good web reference on North American stinging cats, which is from just
next door to you in Alabama, is:

Unfortunately, this web site does not have pictures of the adults.  But if
you type the scientific name of the caterpillar you are curious about into a
search engine like Google http://www.google.com/ you can doubtless find a
picture of the adult.

(BTW, the preferred term is "venomous", not poisonous.  The latter refers to
things eaten, rather than things that bite or sting!)

   One other question. Are poisonous caterpillars very common?
