Canton moth 3 - Ceratomia undulosa

Port Hope, Hope, Ontario, Canada
July 21, 2008

Moved
Moved from Sphinx Moths.

This is
A Sphinx Moth in the genus Ceratomia, probably
C. hageni or C. Hageni. Wait for an expert for a definite ID.

Ceratomia undulosa
Waved Sphinx moth. They cannot possibly bite, but the hard beating of their wings may sometimes feel odd. - Especially with a large moth like a Sphinx moth.

 
You are right
The other images weren't up when I looked, plus I didn't realize C. hageni isn't found up North.
