TRIBE SPHINGINI Latreille, [1802]

Sphingides Latreille, [1802], in Sonnini, Hist. nat. gen. particuliere Crustaces Insectes 3: 400.

Type genus: Sphinx Linnaeus, 1758.

A tribe comprising more than 150 species distributed throughout the Old and New World.

IMAGO: Forewing ground colour brown or grey, with numerous undulating crossbands. Hindwing usually with dark submarginal bands; central area yellow, brown or pink. Inner surface of second segment of labial palpus depressed with a naked area, or scaled and lacking this depression. Proboscis normally well developed and functional. Abdominal spines of variable length and arranged in several overlapping rows.

Genitalia: Male with uncus broad basally and with uncinate extension or a flat tip; gnathos absent, but if present, bilobate or entire, then both uncus and gnathos heavily sclerotized apically; sacculus variable, but with two pointed, straight or curved processes, or with extended, pectinate apical processes. Female with short or long ductus bursae, which is evenly broadened.

LARVA: Usually with several oblique lateral stripes, and smooth in the final instar. Horn usually present (except in Lapara).

PUPA: In those species with adults bearing an elongate proboscis, proboscis free from body. In species where the adult has a short proboscis, this is fused to body. Labrum displaced ventrally. Abdominal segments 5--7 bearing one or two spiracular furrows.

When pictures are available, a P precedes the name of the moth.
