Sphingonaepiopsis gorgoniades Eastern Europe/Asia

An expensive rarity for the connoisseur.

A little-known Hawkmoth with characteristics of shape, pattern and build in common with Proserpinus proserpina and a larva that is remarkably like the caterpillar of the Hummingbird Hawkmoth Macroglossum stellatarum. 

Larvae feed on Bedstraws Gallium and are reported to accept other Rubiaceae, but we have not discovered any examples.

Pupae overwinter. There may be up to 3 broods according to locality and climate.

Sold in two's: our supplier cannot guarantee pairs.
