Sphinx moth unknown.. - Erinnyis alope
Brownsville, Cameron County, Texas, USA

Size: Large moth..
I found this large moth cold-stunned in my yard. At first I thought it to be a common hornworm moth, after close examination I think it may be Cocytius antaeus In particular the orange patches on the hindwing and the strong veining or ribs of the forewing have me puzzled. Thanks.
