Family: Sphingidae, Latreille, 1802
copyright C. Odenkirk
"Most similar to Xylophanes aristor but smaller, ground colour grey-green and with a weaker dorsal abdominal pattern. Lateral abdominal stripes greenish-yellow (rather than golden-yellow as is Xylophanes aristor, Xylophanes resta and related species). Tegula with a weakly developed golden medial line. Forewing upperside ground colour greyish-green, rather than brown (Xylophanes resta and Xylophanes schreiteri) or olive green (Xylophanes crotonis and Xylophanes titana groups); first and fourth postmedian lines equally developed. Forewing underside with apical area on costa pale yellow, contrasting weakly with the orange-yellow ground colour." CATE
Moths emerge approximately one-two months after larvae pupate.
