WTB? My sister took these pictures of this near a pond outside of her work. She said it is about 4 ft [sic] across? What in the world is this??
This beautiful and streamlined moth, Eumorpha pandorus, is commonly called a Pandora Sphinx. Thanks to a comment from Trevor, we would like to draw to your attention that this moth was most likely four INCHES across.

Hey guys I really hope that is a typo and that Sphinx is not 4 ft across! Attack of the mutant Sphinx moths?
Thanks for catching that Trevor. We don’t alter the letters we receive, but we will add a note to our response.
I saw this moth last year . It stayed for couple of weeks outside my apt. Thought it looked like desert Storm bomber
