Manduca corallina

Manduca corallina is a moth of the Sphingidae family. It is found from Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Costa Rica south to Venezuela.[2]

The wingspan is 104–110 mm. The thorax (especially in the male) is less robust than similar Manduca lichenea. Furthermore, the wings are more elongate, but with a very similar pattern.

Adults are on wing year round.

The larvae feed on Cordia alliodora. They have a very rough skin, two dorsal yellow stripes and side slashes on their green body.
