Hagen's sphinx
Ceratomia hageni

Observation date: September 27, 2015
Submitted by: LeaTheCupCake
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: It was hanging off of the dog house and looked like a leaf. It is a very slow mover. My dad thought it was a leaf and knocked it off of the dog house. When he felt it touch his hand he knew it was a bug. It was in the mid-80's and sunny. There is only one tree near the dog house and we are unable to identify it. The closest we've come to the ID it is a Chinese Elm.
