Moth
June 5, 2010
Hi Bugman,
This picture was taken in Drumheller, Alberta, Canada on June 5, 2010. I have never seen a moth like this before, It has a wingspan of 2 inches and very unique antennas compared to other moths I’ve seen. I have looked on the internet and can’t find another like it and was wondering if you could help me identify it?

One Eyed Sphinx

Hi Robert,
Your moth is a One Eyed Sphinx or Cerisy’s Sphinx, Smerinthus cerisyi, and you may read more about it on Bill Oehlke’s excellent website.
