Wikipedia Abstract

Hippotion scrofa is a moth of the Sphingidae family. It is found in Australia, New Caledonia and Vanuatu. The wingspan is about 70 mm. It is similar to Hippotion brennus and Hippotion joiceyi but distinguishable from the former by the lack of paired subdorsal white spots on the abdomen and from the latter by the lack of a dorsal white median line on the thorax. Larvae feed on Epilobium, Coprosma repens, Ipomoea and Fuchsia.
