Hi, I found this beautiful Achemon Sphinx moth on my porch one evening in August in Riverside California . Is it unusual to find these moths in southern California? Thanks to your site I found the name of this moth after searching & looking through your earlier posts. I thought you might want to post my photo since I noticed there arent any recent Achemon Sphinx posts on your site.
Thanks, Alicia

Hi Alicia,
According to Bill Oehlke’s excellent website, the Achemon Sphinx, Eumorpha achemon, is a common species in San Diego County.
