We give special thanks to Jim Tuttle, Max Moulds and David Lane for their much needed help in identifying many of our hawk moth and larva photographs. Their vastly superior scientific knowledge far exceeds ours as citizen science enthusiasts. They have been working for a number of years on preparing their 'Hawkmoths of Australia' book published in January 2020, a treasure we refer to frequently. The previously known 65 Australian Sphingidae (Hawk Moth) species has grown to 87 with the publication of this most welcomed book and includes previously undescribed species.
In addition we acknowledge the Authors of the following books and publications from which we have acquired some of our lepidoptera and botanical knowledge over time:

Common 1990 * A Guide to Australian Moths - Paul Zborowski and Ted Edwards 2007 * Larval Food Plants of Hawk Moths (Lepidoptera: Sphingidae) Affecting Commercial Crops in Australia - M. S.
