Pandorus Sphinx Moth Larva - Eumorpha pandorus

Pandorus Sphinx Moth Larva - Eumorpha pandorus
Town of Plymouth, Village of Glenbeulah, Sheboygan County, Wisconsin, USA
August 31, 2000
Received caterpillar from Therese Randall. Her husband, Scott, had found it on Grape vines (Vitis) near the wastewater treatment plant in Glenbeulah. She called me in Baileys Harbor, saying I just had to have this beautiful caterpillar. She and her husband drove it to Door County (a 3 hr. trip). Not many people would do that. The caterpillar formed a pupa on September 7, 2000. Placed pupa in refrigerator on October 8, 2000. Adult eclosed on May 29, 2001. We drove back to Sheboygan County and released it at the wastewater treatment plant in Glenbeulah on June 1, 2001. The reason we did this was because that species had not been reported from Door County at that time and if someone found it, it would be a false record.
