Observation date: May 26, 2014
Submitted by: rgoers
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Friendly little thing... was flying in and out between my legs. Not scared of humans at all. Was much more interested in the new flowerbed we had just planted.
Status: Unknown
Verified by: Josiah Gilbert
Verified date: May 31, 2014
Coordinator notes: This is a sphinx moth, but Hyles lineata, instead of H. thysbe. H. thysbe would have clear patches on its wings, and also would be smaller.
