The wingspan is 89-110 mm. It is similar in appearance to several other members of the Manduca genus, but a number of differences distinguish it from Manduca andicola, Manduca incisa and Manduca jasminearum, to which it most closely compares, particularly in its uniform forewing upperside with a conspicuous dark band.
There are at least two generations per year in Costa Rica with adults on wing from May to June and again from August to December. In Bolivia, adults have been recorded from October to December.
