Your letter to the bugman: We found this moth on our garage today. We looked it up and we think it might be a Lime Hawk Moth but they are not from Pennsylvania so we’re not sure how it got here. We live just outside Philadelphia.

This is a Pandorus Sphinx, a native species for you, not a European Lime Hawk Moth. Many years ago, we posted an image of a Lime Hawk Moth found in Pennsylvania, but that appears to have been an isolated sighting.
