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
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.
