Apple Sphinx
This is likely Sphinx gordius, # 7810, the Apple Sphinx. However, I'm not completely certain I can rule out Sphinx poecila, once a subspecies of S. gordius. The BMNA site doesn't show a range for poecila that far south, but a couple of sources do. My opinion would be for Sphinx gordius.
