The Sphingidae of Southeast-Asia
(incl. New Guinea, Bismarck & Solomon Islands) Back to start page, species list
by Jan Beck & Ian J. Kitching
Hippotion boerhaviae (Fabricius, 1775)
For further information on this species, see SphinEP
The records from Korea (unlocalized) and Japan (Kyushu & Miyakojima-province,
Honshu) are considered
migrants. There is a general problem of differentiating records for H. boerhaviae and H. rosetta as the two species are almost indistinguishable and were treated as one species for a long time. Thus, older records particularly could refer to either.
