Unknown Sphinx moth caterpillar? - Eumorpha typhon
South Fork of Cave Creek Canyon, Cochise County, Arizona, USA

Size: 4 inches
I have not found a match on the site within the Sphingidae, though some Eumorpha species seem to be fairly close in appearance. Or perhaps it is a silk moth species?

Moved- Not E. achemon
Moved from ID Request.

This is Eumorpha typhon, excellent!

Thanks for the ID. It was visible from quite a distance (15 feet?) so I presume it is rather toxic to anything that might consider preying on it.

Achemon Sphinx cat…
Very nice.
