Family: Sphingidae, Latreille, 1802

I suspect it also flies in Colombia, Peru, Guyana and Suriname.
There is only one prominent, thin but distinct, S-shaped, post median line on the left forewing. The other "pmlines" are broadly diffuse. Ground colour is light grey, often with a yellowish cast. There are two dark dashes below the cell and the upper half of the median area is darker than the lower half.
