Abstract:

"In this paper, four species of the genus Hemaris (Lepidoptera, Sphingidae) are recognized from the Russian Far East: H. ottonis (Rothschild et Jordan, 1903), H. affinis (Bremer, 1861), H. fuciformis (Linnaeus, 1758) and H. radians (Walker, 1856). An identification key, redescriptions, distributions, and overviews of the ecology of Hemaris species in the Russian Far East are provided. The larval hostplant of H. ottonis is recognized for the first time as Weigela praecox (Caprifoliaceae). The morphology and biology of preimaginal stages of H. ottonis have been studied for the first time. Larvae of this species are very different from other Hemaris species. The life cycle of H. radians is given for the first time, with its larval hostplant in the southern part of Primorskii Krai determined to be Scabiosa lachnophylla (Dipsacaceae)."
