Sphinx sp - Sphinx gordius
Dundurn Sand Hills, Saskatchewan, Canada
August 16, 2011
I think this may be Sphinx gordius but that's just a guess. It was crawling across the grass in native prairie (sand hills) so no host plant identified. Looks like it was parasitized so may not have as bright colours as normal. Sphinx larvae look so much alike to me - is there a key for identifying Sphinx larvae from each other?
