Yellow-legged Clearwing Moth / Wespen-Glasflügler

Synanthedon vespiformis

Description:

The wingspan is 18 - 20 mm. The moth flies from April to September depending on the location. The larvae feed on Oak, but also species from the genera Populus, Aesculus and Salix.

Habitat:

It is found in the Palearctic ecozone. I have found pollinating blackberry flowers.

Actually now that I'm thinking approximately 200 m from there ( on the right side looking on the map) someone cut through the bushes that are often consisting of Quercus ilex, to make another way down to the beach, why did you ask, how did you know? :)))
