Hi there, I recently found a large moth resting on the sidewalk on my way home and snapped a picture because I hadn’t seen a pattern like it before. Then the next day a saw another! I’ve become obsessed with finding them now! Thanks to your website I know now that they were Striped Morning Spinx. I thought you might enjoy the pictures! Great website!

Dear New moth hunter,
We have a Striped Morning Sphinx or Whitelined Sphinx,
Hyles lineata, on our front porch at this moment, and another smaller individual was on the screen door Thursday night.
