      In South Africa, there is a distinct alternative which those of us
      from the US might not consider: a nemestrinid fly. If the proboscis
      is long and *non-retractile*, then this is very likely, and would
      rule out a hawkmoth. Nemestrinids in the US are fond of mints, so the
      host plant also fits.

      Peace,
