Poplar Hawk-moth Laothoe populi
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Poplar Hawk-moth Laothoe populi|
Wingspan 65-90 mm.
Probably the commonest of our hawk-moths, it has a strange attitude when at rest, with the hindwings held forward of the forewings, and the abdomen curved upwards at the rear. If disturbed it can flash the hindwings, which have a contrasting rufous patch, normally hidden.
