Dmitry, they came non-identified from Costa Rica, and H.eson has had this label since long ago by It's also here, on the website. Both look quite similar. I can add its photo, like that game Find 10 Differences.

Looks very similar to Hippotion eson, but I've got the latter from Central Africa. Such a wide distribution?
