Verdant Hawkmoth

Hi Lucas,
About a year and a half ago, we received a similar request from an oil field off the coast of Angola and Karl assisted us in identifying it as the aptly named Verdant Hawkmoth,
Euchloron megaera.  Your individual is even more vibrantly green than the previously submitted individual.  You may also compare to the image posted to the Encyclopedia of Life.
