Sphingidae

1990 Striped Hawk-moth, Hyles livornica (Esper, 1779)

Status and ecology:

An immigrant normally only seen singly at rest or at mv light, although it occasionally occurs sparingly. Distinctly episodic in appearance. It arrives in two overlapping flights which appear mainly between early May and early July and again from late July to mid September. Larvae have been found feeding on garden snapdragon and on hedge bedstraw elsewhere. It has recently been discovered that two species have been masquerading under this name, now split to H. lineata and H. livornica, although only one British specimen of H. lineata has so far been found. (Pratt, 2011)
