Sphingidae of Haiti

Xylophanes chiron chiron courtesy of Paolo Mazzei.

Although I believe these "tribal" checklists contain only species within Haiti, there are probably some omissions, and there may be a few improper entries.

The list should be very reliable, however, as it is from Pierre Schmit's Liste Systématique for the Dominican Republic, and I suspect that the two countries have common Sphingidae, with only a few exceptions.

I have made the following additions to the list: Manduca rustica cubana, Isognathus rimosus moliter, Perigonia manni, Xylophanes chiron nechus.

If you have corrections to offer, please contact
