Sphingidae

1985 Oleander Hawk-moth, Daphnis nerii (Linnaeus, 1758)

Status and ecology:

This immigrant is a rarity along the east of the county, where it was last detected in 1995, and extremely rare in the west, where the only 20th century record was made in 1984. It usually arrives between mid August and late September, with an occasional early wave from late May to the third week of July. The larvae feed on periwinkle and oleander abroad, but feral larvae have never definitely been found here. (Pratt, 2011)
