Polkadot Wasp Moth

Wasp or moth?
Is this a wasp or a moth… some say its a wasp, others insist it is a moth. Picture from Key West, FL Thanks for the site.

Hi Don,
This is easily the finest, most detailed image we have ever received of the Polkadot Wasp Moth, Syntomeida epilais, also called the Oleander Moth. We are so sorry we were too busy to answer you the day you sent the photo to us.
