Istar sphinx
Lintneria istar

Observation date: April 07, 1972
Date notes: date is documented in my lepidoptera journal; time approximately 10pm
Submitted by: stomlins701
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: This sphinx was taken at light at the Coronado Village Elementary School about 10pm; the April date is of interest because this species is thought to be univoltine (July-Aug)in its range, at least in AZ; this seems less likely in south-central TX since there is a record from Medina Co. in July, and now this one in April (I wish there were dates for the original records on BAMONA), suggesting 2 broods in this area, or a very long single brood. Specimen is in my collection.
