Acherontia Genus

Acherontia derives from Acheron, the River of Pain in the underworld
__________________________________________________________

"It is regarded not as the creation of a benevolent being, but the device of evil spirits - spirits enemies to man -
conceived and fabricated in the dark, and the very shining of its eyes is thought to represent the fiery element whence it
is supposed to have proceeded. Flying into their apartments in the evening at times it extinguishes the light; foretelling
war, pestilence, hunger, death to man and beast." (Harris, 1840)
