Ambulyx semiplacida 圓斑鷹翅天蛾

This species is endemic to Taiwan, the origin of the type specimen being in Lushan,, Nantou County. The male is similar in appearance to A. regia, hence, it is easily identified incorrectly. The difference between these two is that the male A. semiplacida has a more arched sub-outer edging on its forewing and a wider yellow band.
