Anyone know what this is? I found it hanging on a drape in my living room this morning. So I picked up and put it outside but it hasn't moved. I am in the New York Hudson Valley. Thanks!

It's one of the "Sphinx" moths ... but I don't know which one.

BIG moths with blunt, fuzzy heads.

Maybe Pandora Sphinx moth

I think that it might be an Achemon sphinx...pretty distinctive markings.
