Sighting Record 1234757

Observation Notes: 
The pink form of the Banded Sphinx Moth's caterpillar. It was hot and humid that evening, the sun was going down, and it was right on the edge of the Arkansas River. I am unsure of the host plant, but there were several aquatic-preferring plants nearby, some Indian Heliotrope, and thick forest canopy overhead of mixed deciduous varieties (a lot of oaks and hackberries.)
Region:

Faulkner County
Location Notes: 
Cadron Settlement Park is against the Arkansas River and is about a five to ten minute drive west of Conway, Arkansas. The area is heavily forested, many loblolly pines, hackberries, oaks, junipers, cedars or spruces (unsure) and some toothache trees. Arthropods are abundant here, and I've found many other varieties of caterpillars here in the evenings.
