Haemorrhagia staudingeri ottonis Rothschild & Jordan, 1903, Novit. zool. 9 (suppl.): 457. Type locality: [Russia,] Amur [Amurskaya/Khabarovskiy Kray]
Synonym. Haemorrhagia staudingeri ottonis Rothschild & Jordan, 1903.
Synonym. Hemaris stueningi Eitschberger, Danner & Surholt, 1998.
Wingspan: 37--40mm. Very similar to Hemaris staudingeri but distinguishable by the pale lateral stripes on the upperside of the thorax. Hindtibia yellowish grey over at least the basal half and often almost to the apex (Ian Kitching, pers. comm 2018).
A species of deciduous woodland (Izerskiy, 1999b).
China: v (Liaoning); 16-25.vi (Jilin); 10.vii (Shanxi). Russia: v (Primorskiy Kray); vi (Yevreyskaya); 19.vi (Primorskiy Kray); 4-12.vii (Primorskiy Kray); 2.viii (Primorskiy Kray).
Park et al. (1999) give mid May until late July as the flight period in Korea.
Larval hostplants. Recorded by Chistyakov & Beljaev (1984) from Lonicera japonica; however, this appears to be a secondary reference back to Chu & Wang (1980), which itself appears to be a quote from another source. Serge Yevdoshenko (pers. comm. 2018) has confirmed that Lonicera is not the host for this species in the Russian Far East, having only found and reared it on Weigela praecox (Lemoine) Bailey [syn. Diervilla praecox Lemoine].
