Nectaring in Asclepias fascicularis .

2582 - Sycamore Borer Moth - Synanthedon resplendens
Looks like a match for specimen in Eichlin and Duckworth's MONA monograph, and also seems to be a match for their description in text.

 
Thanks, Bob,
perhaps I should invest in that tome if I expect to see other moths.

Wow! Impressive Creature.
Send one south!
