Squash Vine Borer - Melittia cucurbitae
Exeter, Washington County, Rhode Island, USA
July 9, 2006
I came across this Squash Vine Borer recently in a patch of Milkweed. I at first thought it was a wasp of some kind until I got a close look at the wing patterns which are similar to those of a Hummingbird Moth.
