Does anyone know why this species is Hyles gallii with a double L, when the plant it is named after is Galium, with one L? --Stemonitis 21:02, 16 April 2007 (UTC)
I don't know but that would be really nice to have in the trivia section if someone could find it. -- IvanTortuga 05:07, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
Maybe a lapsus; it it was in the original description, the ICZN makes it not really eaasy to correct these. The original description would need to be checked, which seems quite hard (as in "rare hardcopy") here. Dysmorodrepanis (talk) 23:41, 21 March 2008 (UTC)
