Is anyone aware of any records of Sphinx eremitoides from Oklahoma? It
seems very improbable that the species can be found in Kansas and Texas
but does not occur in Oklahoma; especially considering the very small
overall range of the species. Anyone????????

I apologize for the frequency of these Sphingidae postings but I am
writing a book on the biology of the Sphingidae of the U.S. and Canada.
I am trying to fill in small voids that cannot be answered through the
existing literature, institutional collections, or existing personal
contacts. I am sure that researchers of a generation ago would have
killed for access to a tool like the net.
