Sphingids from Laos

Following on from John's Oleander exctasy, I thought I'd post a few bits from an old trip to Laos.

During a visit to what I think was called 'Pusi' Temple in Luang Prabang, I found a wall which is floodlit at night and it was plastered with some spectacular moths. I went back twice, just for the moths, here are some highlights but there were many others.

I've done my best to ID them with limited resources, please don't be shy with any corrections
