Thanks Lynette. I think that is where I read it also. :)

Small-eyed Sphinx?
It looks very similar to these.

Thanks Lynette.
Yes, it looks very similar to the one posted by Patrick Coin. I was wondering what the bluish sheen was on my specimen but I see it on the others also. Does the curled abdomen indicate a male? Do you know?

Thanks again,

No I don't really know
how to distinguish gender, but I would guess you are right from reading the comments here.
