Smerinthus cerisyi

Observation date: May 21, 2019
Submitted by: Jo Fox
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: The moth was lethargic and inactive when I saw it. I moved it to a safer spot where I took a photo and measured it - 2 3/4 inches long. When I next checked, it was gone. It was a still and unseasonably warm day on Mayne Island off the coast of British Columbia.
