Dolba hyloeus, the Pawpaw Sphinx
One of the plants that I am cleaning out are pawpaws. Pawpaws are not my favorite wild fruit. One a year is my quota.
Pawpaws do well around here. They are bothered by very few pests.
Even though I don't care much for pawpaws, several of our most spectacular moths and butterflies favor them for larval food.
