Proserpina Hawkmoth Proserpinus proserpina

 

This rather rare Hawkmoth is a gem, seldom encountered, though it lives throughout much of western and central Europe, eastwards into Russia.  

 

The pretty little green moth has prominent egg-yolk coloured hindwings.  

 

The larva is rather like a grey form of Small Elephant Hawk. Take a close look and decide which end is which! There is a false eye-spot - at the TAIL!

 

The foodplant is Rosebay Willowherb Epilobium, Evening Primrose Oenothera and Purple Loosetrife Lythrum.

 

The normal flight period is June and July.
