Hi Jdevine,I originally

Hi Jdevine,

I originally thought I was viewing the ordinary Lime hawkmoth larva in ukleps. It was actually the hybrid suggested above I was looking at. The pre-pupa image does appear to bear a close resemblence to your caterpillar.

I am no expert on the hawkmoths even less so the crosses but this looks very similar and I hope it is correct- awaiting agreement or revision......

Great IDing resource available at ukleps:
