Cephonodes Sp MACROGLOSSINAE SPHINGIDAE 

Most hawk moths are night flyers but this one is often seen during the day.
Some months ago a friend sent me photo of this moth. The first time I had come across one, and just a few weeks later there was this one in our garden. There were a few reports of others around the area so there must have been a large hatching or a migration.

This is an old moth and my photo doesn't do the species justice. I recommend the article at:-

Wingspan about 40mm.







 Family:- SPHINGIDAE
Sub Family:- MACROGLOSSINAE
Genus:- Cephonodes Sp
Species:- (Possibly hylas)
