    In November 2004 a White-lined sphinx moth was caught in the evening at Wadi Sora, attracted by our headlamps. The species was seen again during the evening at Karkur Talh in March 2007 (but not photographed), and was noted drinking from the small pool at the spring of Ain Duarmé (Karkur Ibrahim, Jebel Uweinat) in November 2010
