Abstract:

"New island records in the Philippines for two hawkmoths, Amplypterus panopus mindanaoensis and Marumba amboinicus luzoni, are presented together with a checklist (including synonyms) of congeners recorded in the country. The species were found in the vicinity of the 69KV NAPOCOR Power Load End Station in Codon, San Andres, Catanduanes, increasing the number of hawkmoth species record from the island to three. To date, Catanduanes still has a very low species count compared to other islands of the Philippine archipelago. Thus, further exploration and studies on hawkmoths should be conducted."
