Small Eyed Sphinx Paonias myops North America

The Small Eyed Sphinx is not a Smerinthus and the larvae are more found on Prunus trees than on Salix. These are some of the recorded foodplants: Most Prunus, including Cherry, Plum, Laurel, Lilac, Privet, Lime, Willows and Sallows and even Grapevine.

The larva has characteristics of our Poplar and Eyed Hawks. The moth is much smaller than other Eyed Hawks, and has wonderfully camouflaged forewings.
