Identify this please
We recently found this moth laying in the gravel. ( See attached photos) We found a box and brought it home. We think it’s a Underwing Moth but we’re not sure. We live in Colorado. Is it normal for these to live here? Please respond to this e-mail address. Thank You

Dear Carlson Family,
This is not an Underwing Moth, but a Sphinx Moth. More exactly, it is an Achemon Sphinx, Eumorpha achemon.
