Striped Morning Sphinx

Dear Kat,
Though the common name Striped Morning Sphinx is not used as frequently as the name Whitelined Sphinx for
Hyles lineata, we actually prefer the more obscure common name because it was used by author Charles Hogue in Insects of the Los Angeles Basin.  The Striped Morning Sphinx has been reported in all 48 continental states.
