I agree then,
The reference looks reliable.

More like Ambulyx pryeri, as in http://www.sphin-sea.unibas.ch/SphinSEA/... (by the dark "shoulder stripes").

Thanks for the ID. Will update the rest of my spottings later.

Thanks for adding your spottings into the mission.
Now it is more convenient to identify your spottings.
This is an Ambulyx moth.
Maybe Ambulyx pryeri or Ambulyx clavata.
