found it outside our house in the AM today (with the flowers in his curl). so… which of the many California moths is this one. tried to look it up but other photos of similar moths kinda gave me that Wal-Mart headache you get from too much input.
thanks!

Dear RipleyMM,
We are amused at your visual overdose comparison to shopping at big stores.  We believe we have correctly identified your Snowberry Sphinx as
 Sphinx vashti thanks to the Sphingidae of the Americas website.  The only other example of the Snowberry Sphinx on our site was posted in 2008.
