彎帶長喙天蛾 Macroglossum sitiene(Walker,1856)?

Macroglossum heliophila

The "step" in the hindwing band is the most useful identification feature for this species.

M. sitiene also lacks dorsal thoracic markings.

cheers,

Roger.

太過份, 點解可以影得咁清


But really thanks

Finally, after a year, I could get a clear picture of this kind of moths.
I don't know moths . The title is a copy of the information available in this forum.
The photo was taken yesterday 19/7/2007.

I'd take short odds on this being Macroglossum heliophila (90% certain), but can't rule out M. pyrrhosticta. Can't see enough of the dorsal hindwing pattern to be sure which of the two species this is.

cheers,

Roger.

The nickname "flying shrimp" suits them very well



作者: hkmoths    時間: 2007-7-29 09:34

This one is probably (I'm 95% confident of this!!) Macroglossum heliophila.

cheers,

Roger.

Are they the only group of moths that has such kind of hovering behaviour?

by groups, do you mean genus, tribe, subfamily, family?

cheers,

I mean genus
作者: hkmoths    時間: 2007-7-29 18:09

In that case, no.

In Hong Kong, within the Sphingidae, the following genera have been recorded hovering to feed from flowers:
Macroglossum
Neogurelca
Hippotion
Pergesa
Theretra
Agrius
Sataspes
Cephonodes
Eupanacra
Hayesiana
Angonyx
However, I can't immediately think of species from any other moth families that have similar nectaring behaviour.

cheers,

Roger.

Again, I cannot identify this Macroglossum sp. I took the picture in South Lantau last week. During the photo session, I thought I also took some photos of Macroglossum insipida in the vicinty of this specimen.

Is the fan shaped tail assisting the animal in floating in air?

Can't tell which species this is - not enough of the wings are sufficiently visible.
probably one of: M. heliophila, M. pyrrhosticta, M. variegata.

Also need to verify M. insipida, as there are two other similar species (albeit rarer) - M. neotroglodytus & M. poecilum.

cheers,

Roger.

Thanks, Roger! Wooo....!!!! There are so many possibilities. May be I have to collect more photos for one specimen to identify it next time.
作者: hkmoths    時間: 2007-8-4 15:41     標題: Reply #3 passerby-b's post

There are 17 species of Macroglossum that have been recorded from Hong Kong. Fortunately, about half are relatively easy to identify!!

cheers,

Roger.

Macroglossum ????




作者: hkmoths    時間: 2007-8-26 10:40

M. pyrrhostictum / heliophila / variegatum species group - too worn to tell. You didn't manage a shot of the hidwing, by any chance, did you Eddie?

cheers,

Roger.

Hi Nadia,

What makes you confident of it being M. heliophila, please?
作者: nadia    時間: 2007-8-30 07:28

By making reference to photos found on this website in the past and other sources.

pretty good for a first try - you managed to "freeze" the wings in about the best possible place for an identification - showing as much as possible of both the fore and hind wings.

This is Macroglossum heliophila - the most helpful feature is that the border of the yellow and brown in the middle of the hindwing is absolutely straight.

cheers,

Roger.

Very swift action, yet so friendly and close to me -
It was sometimes closer than my photo gear's closest focusing distance

A little girl saw it and said, "oh, hummingbird!"

Macroglossum heliophila

I have managed to photograph M. heliophila, M. pyrrhosticta, M. variegatum and M. passalus this weekend at Tai Po Kau Headland - though it took a fair few misses to get just one or two shots good enough to identify the moths. Well done - your shots are fabulously clear.

cheers,  Roger.

Thanks Roger!
My hit rate was just around 30%
Luckily there were some in-focus ones

What's the identification characteristics for M. heliophila?
作者: hkmoths    時間: 2008-8-18 13:11

There are some features that separate M.heliophila from closely related species like M. pyrrhosticta, M. variegatum & M. sitiene.

The yellow hindwing patch is what I look for first as this seems to be the most consistent character.

cheers,  Roger.

Possibly Macroglossum sitiene?

Not 100% sure about species but I hope genus is right!!

I would put this as M. heliophila.

Please see the key to Macroglossum species that I've uploaded. You can skip the 1st couplet and go straight to couplet 2

cheers,  Roger.

大家可以幫幫我找出牠的scientific name?

It's one of the Macroglossum species. I can't tell from this photo which one, though. If you managed any other shots, please use the key to Macroglossum spp for HK and see if you can work out which species this is.

cheers, Roger.
