This moth was taking a break from a night of flying on our construction trailer porch. Dark green with white blotches that almost form an X.

Dear D Duncan,
Your moth is the Rustic Sphinx, Manduca rustica, and you may learn more about it on the Sphingidae of the Americas website. If you are interested in learning more about moths, you should visit the National Moth Week website to see if there are any events near you.
Thank you very much for this information. I really enjoy seeing new moths and insects I have not found before and will visit the websites you have suggested.
Thanks again, and thanks for the great website you folks operate!
