Description

Laurel Sphinx Sphinx kalmiae North America

 A very large American Hawkmoth. Much the size and markings of our Privet Hawk and not dissimilar in its characteristics, but coloured more beige than grey and with other interesting differences. Its name is derived from the moth's habit of taking nectar from Kalmia flowers. The larvae do not eat Laurel. They feed on Privet and Ash. As easy as Privet Hawk to rear. Might possibly hybridise.
