Hemaris

Treated as a separate species by (Danner, F, Eitschberger, U. & Surholt, B. 1998) and (Eitschberger, U. & Churkin, S.V. 2002). However, alaiana is simply a small, montane form of Hemaris tityus that does not warrant even subspecies status ((Derzhavets, Yu.A. 1984); (Kitching, I.J. & Cadiou J.-M. 2000)).

= scabiosae Zeller 1869

Macroglossa

= alaiana Rothschild & Jordan 1903

Haemorrhagia

Treated as a separate species by (Danner, F, Eitschberger, U. & Surholt, B. 1998). However, saldaitisi falls well within the range of individual variation of H. tityus ((Kitching, I.J. & Cadiou J.-M. 2000)).
