“The Sphingina or Sphinx Moths, so callled from the curious havit which the larva have of raising the anterior segments of their bodies, and remaining motionless in this position for hours, thus bearing a fanciful resemblace to the fabled Sphinx, are for the most part crepuscular and day-flying.” — Encyclopedia Britanica; 1893
