Family: Sphingidae, Latreille, 1802
This species should be easy to identify due to almost completely uniform dark grey-brown almost black ground colour of the forewings. Markings are dark black and distinct and there usually is a small white dot in the cell area.
The hindwing is white with a dark, dentate band along the outer margin.
