A Moth Sighting

25 Jul

Moth

I spied this guy in the shade garden. When I checked the pupa, it was opened

and abandoned. Maybe this is the moth that it held?  I’m working on an identification…Thought it might be some sort of Spinx moth based on the caterpillar but I still can’t pinpoint it.

    Update: I submitted this photo to the identification team at Butterflies and Moths of North America http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org — All I needed to do to submit a sighting was to register and the identification (if they can do one) will be free. I looked into what is in our area and suggested it might be one of the following:
    1. Dolba hyloeus Pawpaw sphinx
    2. Gulphisia Septentrionis

    3.Catocala palaeogama Oldwife Underwing
