Updated as per AN ANNOTATED CHECKLIST OF THE SPHINGIDAE OF BOLIVIA, October 2007
Although I believe these
"tribal" checklists contain only species within Bolivia,
I fully expect there are omissions. If you have corrections
to offer, please contact
Bolivia is surrounded by Brazil to the Northeast, Peru to the Northwest
and Chile, Argentina and Paraguay to the South.

Well represented by the various Sphingidae tribes, there are probably 180 to 210 different Sphingidae species indigenous to the country.
I am most thankful to Jean Haxaire for sending me an electronic copy of Faune de Bolivie, Lépidoptères Sphingidae, Ecologie et systématique.
