Help me ID this species


This very large caterpillar appears to be from a large moth, possibly in the Sphinx moth family but I have not been able to ID it. It was at least 5 or 6 cm long, light brown in color with two horizontal stripes. It has a very tiny tail that is almost not noticeable.


It had fallen from a tree near the shoreline after being attacked by ants. It was found on Isla Mujeres, a small island 7km from Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico.
