Another mid-winter's break for those up north?

Northern Giant Flag Moth
Dysschema howardi (Hy. Edwards, 1886)

Mariamne's Giant Flag Moth
Dysschema mariamne (Geyer, [1835])

Cecropia moths are already emerging in Austin. Also Chris Durden found
the first P. epimenis of the season here in Austin as well.

Grapevine Epimenis
Psychomorpha epimenis (Drury, 1782)

Finally, the recent photo quiz/query I posted was a close up lateral
head shot of a Pluto Sphinx moth...
