Achemon Sphinx Larva - Eumorpha achemon

Achemon Sphinx Larva - Eumorpha achemon
Dodgeville, Iowa County, Wisconsin, USA
August 13, 2011
Size: about 100 mm
I found this crossing a road, probably looking for a pupation site. At first I thought it was just a Pandora Sphinx when I found it. Then I saw the difference in patterning. I was going to try to raise it but I saw that it had a lot of Tachnid Fly eggs on it so I let it free.

Another image?
Can you submit another, cropped image of the region with the eggs? It would be very helpful.
