FLIGHT TIMES AND PREFERRED FOOD PLANTS:
translineatus adults are on the wing from
Eumorpha translineata larvae probably feed upon Vitaceae.

Pupae wiggle to surface just prior to eclosion. Females call at night, and males fly into the wind to pick up and track the pheromone plume.

It is hoped that this
alphabetical listing followed by the common name of the foodplant will
prove useful. The list is not exhaustive. Experimenting with closely
related foodplants is worthwhile.
