Moved from ID Request.

This is a new species for the guide.
BOLD has 4 sub-species bins for this species. They all look pretty much the same anyway. The Florida sub-species should be Manduca brontes cubensis.

Location
Please do not put "FL, USA" into the city field on the submission form. This information is automatic, when you select your state on the the drop-down menu.
I fixed this image for you. You should go back over your other images and edit them.

 
We will
fix them.

Sphinx Moth
Most of the moths in the genus Ceratomia have a dark thorax, that contrasts with the light coloration at the base of the wings. I think that you can rule them out.
