Manduca ochus is a member of the Sphingidae family.
The wingspan is about 12 centimetres (4.7 in). It can be distinguished from other Manduca species by the forewing pattern of a tawny brown and the mottled charcoal costal area. The upperside of the head and thorax are tawny and orange, and there are two pairs of submarginal black dots and a row of marginal black spots on the upper side of the forewing.
There are probably two or three generations per year, with adults on wing in nearly all months in Costa Rica.
The larvae probably feed on Solanaceae species.
