Sphinx in Tucson Yard - Sphinx chersis

Sphinx in Tucson Yard - Sphinx chersis
Tucson, Pima County, Arizona, USA
April 8, 2015
Emerged from pupa dug up in yard at base of non-native Vitex agnus-castus. Other trees nearby in yard include mesquite, pomegranate, lemon, hackberry, various Australian sennas, and native wolfberry (Lycium). There are no manzanitas anywhere in the neighborhood, so I felt that Sphinx asella was very unlikely.
