Special thanks goes to Vernon A. Brou for his extensive research and records regarding the Sphingidae of Louisiana.

Please help me improve this site by sending sighting data (species; location [county]; date) to Bill Oehlke. Images are also greatly appreciated and will be used and credited (with permission) on county pages. I will attempt to identify any Sphingidae larvae or adults that are unknown to you.
