Your letter to the bugman:  I found this beautiful oleander hawk moth in my porch last night but everywhere I look, I see they’re not native to the US. Is this common to see in Alabama?
How you want your letter signed:  Anna

Pandora Sphinx

Dear Anna,
Though it resembles the Oleander Hawkmoth, this is actually a native Pandora Sphinx.  The Pandora Sphinx is not listed on the Alabama Moths site, so you should consider submitting your sighting.

Location: Sylacauga, Alabama
