Description

The Oleander Hawk moth has a greenish head, with a camouflage like colouration comprising of various shades of green and grey. Whilst they can be found in the UK, the species migrate here from other areas of Europe. As a result, they are not necessarily seen every year in the UK.

After dusk, this species can be seen feeding on tubular flowers, such as honeysuckle and tobacco between August and October.

Adult Oleander Hawk moths have a typical wingspan of 3.5-5.1inches (9-13cm).

Our framed Oleander Hawk moth specimens have been sourced responsibly. Find out more about where we source our butterflies and moths from.
