Proserpinus clarkiae - Clark's Day Sphinx - Hodges #7876
difficult to be sure from these photos. Is the 25 mm the wingspan? Small size makes it likely
Thanks

 
Wingspan
I would wager the wingspan was closer to 35mm.
The 25mm was in reference to the length, head to tail. It was difficult to gauge with much accuracy the actual size as the moth did not stay at any one flower for more than a 1/2 second. It moved very fast.
