Tersa Sphinx Moth Caterpillar
Tersa Sphinx
Xylophanes tersa
(Species)
Though this is considered a fairly common species in the eastern U. S. there is no record of it in Tennessee (where this photo was taken). Thanks to my sister-in-law JoAnne Advey for locating these in her yard and providing them with her Pentas to eat. I should also note that these caterpillars are about the size of a person's finger.
