Although I believe these
checklists contain only species within Ecuador,
I fully expect there are omissions. If you have corrections
to offer, please contact
The Cocytius species were recently reassigned to several different genera: Amphonyx, Pseudococytius, Morcocytius. I have listed them alphabetically as they would appear in older Cocytius assignment
with new genera designations. Cocytius macasensis is now regarded as a junior synonym of Amphonyx lucifer.

Sphinx merops judsoni has been equated with nominate merops, and I have followed Tuttle's movement of South American and Central American Sphinx species back to Lintneria genus. Hence Lintneria arthuri and Lintneria merops.
