    Army camouflage moth.. [FALSE ID]


    The Pandora sphinx moth (Eumorpha pandorus), also called the Pandorus Sphinx Moth is a North American moth in the Sphingidae family. It is a large, greenish gray moth with darker patches and pink edges and small pink eyespots. The underside is usually pale yellow-green or brown. It has a wingspan of 3 1/4 - 4 1/2 inches (8.2 - 11.5 cm), females being slightly larger than males. Pandora sphinx moths fly during dusk.

    Friends I'm sorry! I was wrong, 'Army camouflage moth' is a wrong ID. This is a Oleander Hawk Moth(Deilephila nerii) and I's sorry for providing wrong information.

    So here are some true info i found about this fellow...
    Oleander Hawk Moth


     

    I should thank to Elaphrornis & Nuwan Chathuranga for helping me to identify this fellow...
