achemon sphinx moth?
I have visited your site many times for bug ID, have sent pictures for ID and even visit just to see what others are finding, very interesting site. Attached is a picture of what I think is a achemon sphinx moth. I saw a picture on your website and it looks the same, just looking for verification. Found in Sebring, Florida April 2006. Keep up the great work.
You are correct. Thank you for sharing your close encounter with an Achemon Sphinx, Eumorpha achemon. Unlike our previous photo, yours shows the pink coloration of the underwings.
