I've seen several White-lined Sphinx Moths this spring, one on a bald, one on
a prairie and the most recent one was hanging on a Jasmine plant I purchased at
Lowe's in Lacey, Washington.
I've never seen one before and I've been doing lepidoptera surveys for several
years now so I would support the idea that they're unusually abundant this year.
