Nessus sphinx
Amphion floridensis

Observation date: April 19, 2020
Submitted by: paulselden
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This hummingbird-like moth was flitting between these flowers, but a very difficult thing to photograph. The obvious identification sign was the two (I originally thought three) white bands on the abdomen. Lovely sunny day, nearly 70°.
