Narrow-bordered bee hawkmoth – LEPIDOPTERA LIBANOTICA

Narrow-bordered bee hawkmoth

Hemaris tityus

A bee hawkmoth with a wingspan of 40-50 mm, closely resembling a bumblebee, and distinguished from the broad-bordered by narrower marginal bands and a continuous discal cell on the forewing. The narrow-bordered lives in many habitats, preferring forest clearings and marshy woodland. This moth flies in May and June and, unlike other hawkmoths, is a day-flier.
