For some reason, we are having difficulty uploading your image. Your moth is the Vine Hawkmoth or Gabi Moth, Hippotion celerio, which we found on the Butterfly House website where it states: “The moth is agriculturally important as it is one of several species largely responsible for the pollination of Papaya ( Chamaedorea tepejilote ).” More information can be found on Sphingidae of the Eastern Palaearctic.
