Virginia Creeper Sphinx ?
May 13, 2010
This little fellow made its way into the house this evening. It finally tired of flying around and stopped long enough for some photos before going on its merry way (outside) I do believe I have an ID after pouring over your website. I think it is a “Virginia Creeper Sphinx.” Thanks to your wonderful website each insect I come in contact with is now a challange to ID it.. Thank You

Dear Richard,
You should be congratulated for self identifying your Virginia Creeper Sphinx, Darapsa myron.  You can see the entire life cycle on Bill Oehlke’s excellent website.
