Modest Sphinx - Pachysphinx modesta

Modest Sphinx - Pachysphinx modesta
along Hwy 88 near Praag, Buffalo County, Wisconsin, USA
September 20, 2010
The larvae pupated under some sphagnum moss at the bottom of their cage. Shortly after this photo was taken, I put the pupae in a plastic container in the refrigerator for the winter. I took them out and put them outside in late March 2011.
