We once had this one, one of my hardest ever to ID:

Your is the female of Cerberus, I think. Karen's is the male, but I have some doubts about hers being Cerberus, although Julian Donahue brought that one into the came (besides Druryi). I did not had the time to discuss that with Julian. But I am still very confident about the ID of Karen's Trichura sp.
Please, verify Cerberus for your wasp moth! I am pretty sure, but would not bet my ranch on it.

You have to look very carefully at each vein and marking to compare...
But it was a fine final ID for this great day! Good night!
