Family: Sphingidae, Latreille, 1802

"Very similar to Xylophanes elara but slightly larger. Outer spur of midtibia equal in length to inner spur. Forewing upperside very similar to Xylophanes elara but postmedian lines and vein spots on submarginal line stronger. Base of forewing underside similar to that of Xylophanes elara but postmedian line reaching at most from the apex to M3, beyond which it is represented by a row of vein dots; often the line is formed solely from vein spots or can even be entirely absent." CATE
Specimens can be light brown (possibly faded) or even have a bluish-green cast.
