About this book

Hawkmoths, the subject of this AIDGAP fold-out chart, are some of the most colourful and conspicuous moths in the British Isles.

The largest resident moth, the privet hawkmoth, is the size of a mouse, and can be seen flying in gardens as far north as Lincolnshire. In 2007 adult hawkmoths have emerged even earlier than in 2006, and many species are extending northwards in their range.

The adults and caterpillars of all 18 British species (including the 9 resident species) are illustrated in this chart. The reverse side gives valuable information to help you with hawkmoth identification, including for each species the regional distribution in Britain and Ireland, the main larval foodplants and the time of adult emergence. Further information is given on simple steps that you can take to attract hawkmoths to your own garden.
