    Not M. glaucoptera. That species does not have a dark stripe on the body, as far as I can see.

    The closest I can find is M. variegatum, but this is only an educated guess as the genus is very difficult to id without examination of the genitalia. Also, yours is newly eclosed and extremely beautiful (must be the new camera of yours....only kidding!), and all photos I can find are rather worn specimens.

    I got an identification thanks to Tony Pittaway and his website http://tpittaway.tripod.com/china, I suggest everybody.

    The moth is a Macroglossum divergens heliophila.

    I did a check on this earlier. Some features are not quite right.

    The FW apical pattern is different; the 2 abdominal black spots are of a different shape; the anal brushes are red instead of black.

    It could be just subspecies difference.

    PS. There is no other match, so ID has to be correct.

    Quite what that Sesiid moth is, is very difficult.

    There appeared to be one offered for sale (from Thailand) but without a name.

    The closest appeared to be Desmopoda bombiformis based on the narrow yellow-striped abdomen, type location Ambon, Maluku.
