Many of the images of Sphingidae larvae and adults on this website (especially the Central and South American sections) come from Dan Janzen who works tirelessly on a project to raise funds for "rainforest purchase in Costa Rica to add land to the Area de Conservacion Guanacaste (ACG), where the great majority of these moths occur as living wild populations. There is NO overhead charged on these funds. The current ACG land purchase project is described at the following web site: http://janzen.sas.upenn.edu/RR/rincon_rainforest.htm".

If you appreciate this website and would like to contribute to the rainforest conservation project, please consult the link above.

Contributions can be made out to Guanacaste Dry Forest Conservation Fund and sent to
