Mike Van Buskirk

Mike Van Buskirk has sent me many spectacular images of Sphingidae larvae and adults from the southwestern states.

There is some question as to whether the above larva is Sphinx libocedrus or Sphinx chisoya. There is even a question as to whether or not these insects are actually the same species.

Mike was successful in getting the larva to pupate. Hopefully next summer, we will have a live moth to display.
