Sphingidae of Dominica

Xylophanes tersa tersa courtesy of John H. Campbell.

Although I believe these "tribal" checklists contain only species within Dominica, there may be some omissions and/or erroneous inclusions.

The list should be farily reliable, as it is from Jean Haxaire's Systematic List for Martinique and Guadeloupe, islands to the north and south of Dominica.

Claire Foxley sent me the image of Eumorpha fasciatus to the right. She encountered the moth on April 3, around 8:30 pm while visiting Dominica.

If you have corrections to offer, please contact
Bill Oehlke at oehlkew@islandtelecom.com. I am very happy to receive sighting data and display images. I will also try to help with identifications of Sphingidae from Dominica.
