Hi, I was wondering if you could identify this bug. It’s not like any other moth I’ve seen and wonder if it’s a moth at all?

Dear crazy moth,
The Whitelined Sphinx is a common moth in the Los Angeles area.  It is a species that thrives in desert areas of the Southwest and when conditions are right, Whitelined Sphinxes can be attracted in great numbers to lights.
