Large Caterpillar on our grapevine
Hello Bugman.
My daughter found this large Caterpillar, munching the leaves on our grapevine, at the side of the house. We live in Southern California. We believe it is a species of Hawk Moth; however we are struggling to find the correct ID within our insect book. It has a ‘false’ eye on it’s tail end. Please help us with our mystery. Thanks.

Hi Stuart,
The Achemon Sphinx Caterpillar does feed on grape leaves.
