UNPUBLISHED COMB. NOV.
Unpublished phylogenomic analyses confirm that to prevent paraphyly of Sphinx, the genus Hyloicus must be accepted as valid (as asserted by Zolotuhin & Yevdoshenko (2019) (STI 22079). However, they did not formally include all the relevant species in Hyloicus and Hyloicus centrosinaria is one of those that remains to be formally transferred.
