Eitschberger, Danner & Surholt, 1998
It is similar to Hemaris tityus, but the marginal forewing band is very narrow and that of the hindwing is almost absent. Kitching & Cadiou considered that the diagnostic features of the holotype of Hemaris saldaitisi fell within the range of variation of Hemaris tityus and treated the former as a junior synonym of the latter. Eitschberger et al. reinstated Hemaris saldaitisi as a species, but gave no reason for doing so and did not attempt to refute the arguments of Kitching & Cadiou.
