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,
There are probaby some French Guianan species not listed below, and there are some species not officially confirmed for French Guiana, although
I think they have a good chance of being found there.
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.
Fw very similar to Pachygonidia subhamata, but apex is pointed (not sinuate between Rs3 and Rs4, i.e. not dentate at the end of Rs4).|
Outer margin slightly angulate at bottom of hollowed out region below apex, not as rounded (convex) as in subhamata or mielkei.
Hw: two median transverse pinkish-buff bands, similar to patterns of Pachygonidia mielkei and Pachygonidia subhamata.
Japix and pronoe
somewhat similar, but fw cell marking
in stong contrast with surrounding area in pronoe;
masked in japix. Outer, white aml in japix pronounced,
very straight; in pronoe weaker, very irregular. Distinct, lighter, basal
suboval patch in japix.
