Clearwing Moth - Synanthedon pictipes
Grand Rapids, Kent County, Michigan, USA
July 12, 2011
Found feeding on Shasta Daisy (Leucanthemum x superbum 'Becky')

Moved from Sesioidea.

Moth ID
I would say based upon what I can see that it is most likely Synanthedon pictipes (Lesser Peachtree Borer).

Moved from ID Request.

Looks like Sesiidae but beyond that I have no idea.
