The Oleander Hawk Moth in verse....

Two highly-qualified friends, Rachit and Shubham, were debating about whether the photo of a moth posted on the group we all belong to, was "Daphnis nerii" or "Daphnis hypothous".

It makes no difference to mostofous.
More general is our talk:
It's "Moth, Oleander Hawk"...
We have no other theory or hypothesous!

Here's the beautiful moth:
