Look at this amazing Pandorus Sphinx Moth (Eumorpha pandorus) that was found on a car in a parking lot. It is a large moth with a wing span of 3 1/4 - 4 1/2 inches. The colors of light brown and olive green, along with this interesting pattern is a perfect camouflage for hiding in the foliage. This sphinx moth is nocturnal and is best seen during its active times which are dawn and dusk. These fast fliers can be found sipping nectar from milkweed plants, petunias, bouncing bet, and white champion. Their host plants are in the grape family such as Virginia Creeper and Peppervine. According to butterflyandmoths.org, Pandorus Sphinx moths can be found in "Nova Scotia and Maine, west through southern Wisconsin to central Kansas, south to south Florida and south Texas." I found this one in northeastern USA.
