Cool! I must admit that was a hard one...
Thank you bayucca,you are right.Also I have seen the adult moth in the same locality.
Sphingidae, Macroglosinae, probably Hippotion sp. and probably Hippotion boerhavia. Please verify and specially read the description of the larva. I think that sounds quite good ;-)..."Horn with base pinkish, middle black, tip white; legs pink; venter sparsely dotted with white (Bell & Scott, 1937)."But I am not 100% sure, but this one is the only reasonable/best match I found.
