Adhemarius blanchardorum (Blanchard's sphinx moth) is a species of moth in the family Sphingidae. It was described by Hodges in 1985,[1] and is known from the Green Gulch in the Chisos Mountains in Texas. It is probably also found in the neighbouring mountains of Mexico.[2]

The length of the forewings is 43–53 mm. It is similar to Protambulyx strigilis, but can be distinguished by the green spots and the large dark basalspot on the forewing.
