Tobacco hornworm - Manduca sexta ? - Amorpha juglandis

Tobacco hornworm - Manduca sexta ? - Amorpha juglandis
Benton, PA, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, USA
August 29, 2009
Size: 2.5"
Found this lovely while hiking waterfall trails in Ricketts Glenn State Park. It confused me as I did not see any tomato or any other general hornworm-type food nearby. It was very pretty, though I never got a shot of its face as it kept it tucked inside.
Beautiful camo as it looked just like a new growth leaf
Do I have the ID correct?
