Caterpillar of a sphinx moth

6625.    Our dog found this in my wife’s flower beds. It is the size of a “cigar”, segmented, no legs, and has two large eye like markings on one end. The other end looks like it comes to a point. Wautoma, Wisconsin. United States

 

Number 6625. This is a caterpillar of a sphinx moth (Lepidoptera: Sphingidae) in the genus Lintneria. Click here for an example.

    Thanks so much Pest Control Canada for solving our mystery. Everyone we showed the picture to was very curious as to what it was.
