moth ID
This moth is Synanthedon resplendens based upon your 3 photos. The State of California has a publication available called "The Clearwing Moths of California" by Duckworth & Eichlin with images. It is available through the Dept. of Agriculture. It should be moved back to the genus Synanthedon.

 
Thanks
I wasn't sure. Got confused..lol. Appreciate the help and I will look into that book, big thanks for the info.

ID
No problem. These moths are tough as there are ~ 150 U.S. and northern Mexican sesiid species. Please have these moved to the S.resplendens photo line-up.

 
Think we are home??

Thanks all,.
