This is a very tentative checklist based
primarily on a checklist I had compiled for Ecuador so I fully expect
there are omissions and some erroneous inclusions. If you have
corrections to offer, please contact
Many thanks to Vladimir Izersky (vi) who has begun (2008) to send many electronic images with data for Peru.
Bill Oehlke at email@example.com.
I have also added some species, based on listing on the CATE (C) website.
Hubert Mayer (hm), Bob Curry (bc) and Peter Bruce-Jones (pbj) have also sent many images from Peru as has Vadim Kroutov (VK). Bernhard Wenczel indicates Jose Boettger sent him a Protaleuron rhodogaster from Oxacampa, Pasco, Peru, eastern slopes, at elevation of 2512m.
Patrick Demez (pd) sends this beautiful image of Hyles annei.
Sphinx merops judsoni has been equated with nominate merops, and I have followed Tuttle's movement of South American and Central American Sphinx species back to Lintneria genus. Hence Lintneria arthuri and Lintneria merops.
Many thanks to Frank Steiger who confirms both Nyceryx maxwelli and Protoleuron herbini.
I have added, February 26, 2015, Xylophanes epaphus to this list, based on personal communication with Vadim Kroutov.
