“A considerable number of insects belonging to Sphingina have transparents wings. Among them is the humming-bird moth, Sesia pelasgus, often seen at evening in our gardens during the moths of June and July hovering like a humming-bird over the flowers and sucking their nectar with its long tube.” — Goodrich, 1859
