Food Sources update[edit]

I'm pretty sure I've got these in my yard eating Boerhavia, as attested at http://nitro.biosci.arizona.edu/zeeb/butterflies/Sphynx.html

Add to food sources? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:8800:7380:4BE0:284C:6FB2:BD17:A890 (talk) 01:59, 31 July 2017 (UTC)

Peer Review[edit]

Hello! I am reviewing this page for a WashU Biology course. This article for the most part had good organization and great sectioning. I reorganized a few paragraphs in terms of relevant information, and I shifted some sentences from one section to another. I also added more details on the food source of adult butterflies, which differs depending on whether they’re diurnal or nocturnal. Then I added information in the “interactions with humans” section, in which they were used as a food source by Native Americans. I then added the appropriate references to the new information that I added. Awesome job! Z.kelley —Preceding undated comment added 19:55, 8 November 2017 (UTC)

I thought the article had great organization through many specific subsections. I thought the lead paragraph didn’t fully grab my attention, so I added a little bit about their social larvae behavior to make it stand out more. I like the listing of food resources, I thought that was original and unique from the other Wikipedia pages I have seen. I thought the detailed section on tongue length was interesting and an example of the moth’s individuality. Maybe add a citation under Parental care, but I didn’t change it because I thought it came from the same citation as Oviposition. I got rid of the heading Caterpillar sociality because I thought it was repetitive to place underneath the heading Social behavior. I also made some minor grammatical changes to improve the flow of the article. Thanks and awesome job! engelde —Preceding undated comment added 23:13, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
