Convolvulus Hawk Moth (larvae)

Gnathothlibus erotus

Description:

Around 6cm in length.

Habitat:

This caterpillar has been chewing on the leaves of my sweet potato. I saw him for 3 days, but now I've lost him. My vege patch is only 2x2m so hopefully I can spot him in his pupal stage.

Notes:

Adult shown here....... http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/160...

There remains some doubt as I am not familiar with the caterpillar of Agrius godarti.
