Pink-spotted hawkmoth
Agrius cingulata

Observation date: October 02, 2008
Submitted by: Jay Cossey
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Found under a light on the side of the Biodiversity Institute of Ontario building at the University of Guelph. I knew right away it was something odd--seeing a large Sphingid in October doesn't normally happen in Ontario. It wasn't until I captured it and saw the bright pink that I knew what it was.
