Hawk Moth spotted by John B. Palauig, Central Luzon, Philippines 4 hours ago

Sphingidae; Hippotion sp. Philippine Lepidoptera's website is always my first port of call when I am trying to identify any butterfly or moth that I encounter here in Luzon, Philippines. Only once or twice have I spotted a species that is not represented in their collection and even on those rare occassions, they have generally had specimens sufficiently close to mine to point me in the right direction. Today was one of those occasions. They have a moth on display which is extremely close to my specimen shown here. It is identified as follows: "Hippotion sp. * may be H. rosetta, H. boerhaviae or H. rafflesii". I find this kind of information most helpful. Not every website makes the effort to go that extra mile. So my specimen for now is rosetta, boerhaviae or rafflesii until I can find pictures of those for comparison purposes.
