Elephant Hawk-moth

Deilephila elpenor

Description:

We found this deceased hawkmoth in at our house in Tuscany. It looks like it may be a hummingbird hawkmoth, but doesn't fit the typical image of Macroglossum stellatarum.

Habitat:

Urban garden along highly developed and impacted riparian wetland.
