Walnut sphinx
Amorpha juglandis

Observation date: September 14, 2011
Submitted by: aut2bhomeincarolina
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: It was a clear, warm night in Manning, SC. I found it on the column of my back porch. I captured it and put it in our butterfly garden net so we could draw pictures in our nature notebook. I decided to submit it because I did not see any walnut sphinx moths sighted in my county (Clarendon).
