Sphinx Moth Caterpillar? - Ceratomia sonorensis

Sphinx Moth Caterpillar? - Ceratomia sonorensis
Tucson, Pima County, Arizona, USA
October 10, 2014
Size: 3 cm
I found this caterpillar on a vertical post on my patio. He's been in the same position for hours with no motion at all. I just went out to check the corpse, and he moved feebly. If he's still there in the morning I'll move him into some bushes. Any opinions as to species? Note small size.
