Moth ID

I wasn't able to get a picture, but we had a giant moth around the porch light [last] evening. 

It was black, shaped like a witch moth, but smaller, black and one white dot on each wing.  It was about 3" wide. Body was about 2" long and 1/2 thick.  I've gone through a couple of ID websites and couldn't find anything, and my field guide is MIA.

Any ideas?

I don’t know what part of town you’re in but when I was living on the mesa, we got them around the porch light about this time every year. Wikipedia has an article on sphinx moths.

A Baby Mothman maybe...

Sounds like a southern bellend.

Most likely a sphinx moth.
