Many thanks to additional breeders, collectors, photographers for their image submissions.
This tentative checklist will become more accurate as images and information are sent to me. If you would like to assist in the development of this worldwide Sphingidae data/image base, please send info and images to Bill Oehlke.
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 brought to you by Bill Oehlke and the WLSS. Pages are on space rented from Bizland. If you would like to become a "Patron of the Sphingidae Site", contact Bill.
Please send sightings/images to Bill. I will do my best to respond to requests for identification help.
