Sphingidae of Bolivia

Although I believe these "tribal" checklists contain only species within Bolivia, I fully expect there are omissions. If you have corrections to offer, please contact
Bill Oehlke at oehlkew@islandtelecom.com.

Bolivia is surrounded by Brazil to the Northeast, Peru to the Northwest and Chile, Argentina and Paraguay to the South.

Well represented by the various Sphingidae tribes, there are probably 180 to 210 different Sphingidae species indigenous to the country.

I am most thankful to Jean Haxaire for sending me an electronic copy of Faune de Bolivie, Lépidoptères Sphingidae, Ecologie et systématique.
