Sphinx caterpillar - Eumorpha vitis

Sphinx caterpillar - Eumorpha vitis
New Braunfels, Comal County, Texas, USA
July 11, 2014
Size: Approx. 3"
My mom found this caterpillar on a vine (we think it's either grape or Virginia creeper) at a friend's house down the road from ours. It is fairly large-about 3" or so. I think it might be Eumorpha vitis, but I am not sure if it's that or maybe E. fasciatus,or something else. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
