The five-spotted sphinx moth (Manduca quinquemaculata) has a wingspan of 3.5 to 5.25".  Its very large caterpillars, known as *tomato* hornworms, feed on plants in the nightshade family (Solanaceae); they have a *black* 'horn' on their back end. Can be confused with the closely related tobacco hornworm; however,  tobacco hornworms have a red 'horn.'
