    About This Project

    This project is aimed at understanding the morphological differences between two species of Sphingidae (Hawkmoths). Both species of Apple Sphinx, Sphinx gordius and Sphinx poecila, are found in the Northeastern USA. Due to similarities in appearance, they are hard to separate in the field. This project aims to develop field marks for both adults and larvae, and use those marks to assess the populations found within Massachusetts and evaluate their conservation need.
