Callambulyx Rothschild & Jordan

Type species: rubricosa Walker.

The striking green forewings and bright, deep pink hindwings are definitive for this genus. The tongue is short and weak. In the male genitalia the uncus is apically bilobed or bifid; the valve is narrow with a massive sacculus that terminates well distally in a bidentate harpe.

The genus is entirely Oriental, extending from the tropics north to Korea (D'Abrera, 1986: 88).
