Long Proboscis Hawkmoth, Amphimoea walkeri (Boisduval, 1875). Caranavi, Yungas, Bolivia february 8, 2018. Photographer; Peter Møllmann

Long Proboscis Hawkmoth, Amphimoea walkeri (Boisduval, 1875). The wingspan is 147–164 mm.
Adults are on wing year round. They have the longest insect
proboscis in the world, and nectar from deep-throated flowers as Angel's Trumpet, Brugmansia arborea while hovering in the air.
Larvae feed on
Anaxagorea crassipetala, a lowland rain forest tree of Costa Rica and surrounding areas,
and probably other members of the
Annonaceae family.

Here another hawkmoth species with long proboscis from Madagascar;
Dawins Hawkmoth, Xanthopan morganii praedicta (Rothschild & Jordan, 1903),
Named in honour of its predicted existence by Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace, exclusively pollinates the Madagascar
Darwin's Orchid, Angraecum sesquipedale (Thouars, 1822).
The proboscis of this hawk moth is long enough to reach the nectar receptacle of the orchid, which is between 20 and 35 cm (8 and 14 inches) in length.
