The Hawkmoths (SPHINGIDAE, Macroglossinae) of Papua Indonesia

by Willem Hogenes

Macroglossum stigma Rothschild & Jordan, 1903


Distribution

 

 

STATUS: A rare species.

PAPUA LOCALITIES: New Guinea: Jayapura, Mapia (Kobowre Mountains*), Nabire, Utakwa River, Van Weels Camp. Details in gazetteer.

EXTERNAL DISTRIBUTION: Papua New Guinea.

DATA SOURCES: Website Sphingidae of Southeast Asia.

* note: On the distribution maps of "Sphingidae of Southeast Asia" we noticed frequently marks on the Mapia Islands, North of Numfor. By experience in collections, however, we think this is a misunderstanding and this should be the village Mapia, Southeast of Nabire in the Kobowre Mountains, which is much more often visited by collectors.
