STI taxonomic comments: 
Regarding the publication date, Butler (1876) (STI 17080) wrote, "Dr. Boisduval’s long expected work on the Sphingidae has recently appeared, bearing date 1874; that it was not, however, procurable earlier than February 22nd, 1875, I have evidence in a letter from the author, dated 18th of February, 1875, in which he says "Le spécies des Sphingides, Sésiides et Castniides sera mis au vente Lundi prochain, chez M. Roret, éditeur, Rue Hautefeuille, à Paris". The Atlas appears to have been published in 1836, well ahead of the rest of the volume in [1875].
