Sharon Thompson noticed this moth on the outside of her lanai screen, at her home in Country Walk, in Wesley Chapel. Its common name is rustic sphinx, a moth in the Sphingidae family. These moths are called hawkmoths and the caterpillars are often referred to as hornworms, due to the horn-shaped protuberance found on the insect’s posterior end.
