Daphnis hypothous crameri
Large moth similar in appearance to the oleander Hawkmoth but more rare
Lowland tropical rainforest
I spotted this one gloomy morning on the main trail in Sinharaja Forest reserve. At first I thought it was the oleander Hawkmoth but I was corrected. This is actually a more rare species which makes it even that much more special. I took more photos but they are all from this angle as it was surrounded by plants.
