    Default A Pretty Sphynx

    This flew into my house last night. I think it could be a Theretra sp., possibly T. silhetensis or T. oldenlandiae. Could someone confirm. The hindwing is predominently dark grey, with a single lighter submarginal stripe.

    Thank you very much for the ID, Roger.

    I have added site to my favourites. It is disappointing that they do not have a checklist for Thailand, so I will have to rely on that for West Malaysia.

    I note that for T. lycetus, this species is not on the 'recorded' list, but only the 'expected' list!

    Hi Les,

    I'm sure that Jan Beck (whom I met in 2006 at the 1st South East Asian Lepidoptera Conservation Symposium held here in Hong Kong) will be happy to hear of your record.

    cheers,

    Roger.
