Goes so far to "uncertain".

I checked up Macroglossum of East Asia on the where they almost all looked the same. So using the method of exclusion and also considering that my specimens have 46—58mm wingspan (one of them is especially small, just 34mm, might have been a "frequently sick child"), summarizing all that, this turns out to be Macroglossum pyrrhosticta, Butler 1875.
