recognize this moth?
« on: September 20, 2009, 01:52:06 AM »

A lady at another forum posted these pics of a moth she found on the side of her house. It's about 3" long, and she'd in Texas.

I know it's not a plant or a tree.... but it does appear to have a lovely woodgrain pattern, so that's something, right?  ;)

Anyone know what it is/might be?

Thanks!

It seems to be a mutated Sphinx moth.  I don't see a hind wing. Some species resemble hummingbirds with rapid wing beats.

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

Thank you!

I posted your reply and she said she thinks the hind wing is hidden underneath the forewings. She googled to see more pics and says that's exactly what it is.

Thank you!
