Nigel Venters has a keen interest in Sphingidae and Saturniidae and is now collecting in Argentina, where he now (2009) resides. He has sent some beautiful images and useful information. It is very nice to have the wingspans, dates, elevations and precise locations that Nigel has been sending.

Nigel is also rearing and has been sending new food plant discoveries as well as images of early instars and foodplants and observations.

The larva pictured above is from a relatively small Manduca species. Both Jean Marie Cadiou and Jean Haxaire indicate it is probably one of the Manduca sexta subspecies or a new species.
