Hyles gallii


Бражник подмаренниковый. Размер 29–39 мм. Передние крылья темно-коричневые, с контрастной светло-охристой продольной полосой, проходящей через все крыло, не достигая переднего края. Задние крылья черные, с широкой розово-красной перевязью. Вид широко распространен в Евразии и Северной Америке. Бабочки летают в июне и июле. В Оренбургской области в конце августа и сентябре отмечались особи второй генерации. Единственный из наших бражников активный как в ночное, так и в дневное время суток. Гусеницы живут па кипрее и подмаренниках. Куколкой перезимовал в хоз.помещении в земле. Вылупился сегодня. Видела гусеницу в прошлом году -зеленоватого цвета с красными точками(молодая форма).С наступлением сумерек быстро вылетел и пропал..

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated Irina!

Thank you;Leuba.

Hawk-moth in the span of the wings 55-80 mm. In the evening he eats on flowers, at night flies to the light. The pupa overwintered in the household in the ground. It hatched today. I saw the caterpillar last year-a greenish color with red dots (a young form). With the onset of dusk,he quickly flew out and disappeared .
On this page I made photo of larva
