Fur covered looking moth
August 12, 2009
This moth stayed on our front porch for two days, left and came back the other night but left again. It is so interesting I posted it to Facebook and asked if anyone knew what it was. A friend suggested I try here. Any ideas?

Your marvelously streamlined moth is a Tersa Sphinx, Xylophanes tersa. We also just received and are about to post a photo of a Tersa Sphinx Caterpillar.
