I have arranged the images in accordance with my perception of wing characters: predominent markings, shape, colour, size.
Females often have a wing shape or pattern that differs from the males. I hope some day to also have a thumbnail checklist for the females.
This page is inspired by and dedicated to Ezequiel Osvaldo Núñez Bustos who has sent me many images of Sphingidae with data from Argentina.
Pachylia and Pachylioides
