Wish the article mentioned the caterpillar stage... those scary looking hornworms on tomato plants grow into these beauties.

They are a sphinx moth type of caterpillar, but you won't find these on a tomato plant. Their host plants are honeysuckle, plum trees, locust trees and snowberry shrubs (which are a honeysuckle relative)
