Very nice moths you have posted from FL!

 
Thanks, Yes- some good moths here.
I think I am in a good geographic position to add to the Guide.

Yep
I agree with you, Cocytius antaeus, nice find and great addition to the guide, first adult depiction of this species for BugGuide.

You should link your two images.

 
Thanks
Thanks for the confirmation. I thought I had already linked these- done now.
