Hog sphinx Darapsa myron North America

 

A very attractive little North American Hawkmoth. The moth is beautifully patterned in greens and greys, with orange hindwings and a very streamlined shape.

 

The caterpillar feeds on Vine and Virginia Creeper. Large larvae have a curious shape and markings, with swollen segments behind the head, suggesting the head of a snake. There are green and brown forms, with intermediate colours.

 

Absent from our lists for more than 10 years, we now have a breeding stock to supply eggs and larvae in 2018.
