  • Daphnis hypothous moorei (Macleay, 1866) [subspecies according to]

3.3. Distribution

The species was described from the island of Ambon in Indonesia.

There is one single specimen found in Scotland. Agassiz et al. (2013: 120) told us: "One Pertshire, 1873: (Clancy et al., 2012: 590). Asiatic."

A.R. Pittaway [Sphingidae of the Western Palaearctic: (december 18th 2021)] wrote: "Occurs in the western Palaearctic region as a rare vagrant. However, the frequency is not known because of its confusion with Daphnis nerii. During the last hundred years a number have been discovered within the Middle East; one was even found in Scotland late last century but was probably imported as a pupa with cargo."

3.4. Year of the first description

We follow the statement of Hemming (1958).
