Hornworms...sphingid larvae

A researcher asked me to pass the following along. He is researching sphingid larvae and would like to know the distribution of particular species.

Keep your eyes open for any Sphingidae larvae that look like the ones on the link below. They
feed mostly on mint, sage, Verbena, lantana and Monarda.
If you know anyone else who has a garden who might grow those plants, please forward the link.

If you find the larvae, you can contact:
