Larvae Match-up Part 3

I never knew I had so many species of butterflies and moths photographed! This series will have two, maybe three, up-coming sections. Tonight, two of the species I have matched up were not matched by me, but by Pete. He commented on the Lost Larvae post with his match ups for the first two larvae of the night — the Modest Sphinx and the Bristly Cutworm moths. I can't contact him to thank him personally, so I thank him here!
