Caption: Spurge hawkmoth (Hyles euphorbiae) on a tree. Named after the spurge plant (Euphorbia sp.) on which they lay their eggs, this moth is found throughout southern and central Europe, northern India and central Asia. Spurge hawkmoths can grow up to 3 centimetres in length with a wingspan of up to 5 centimetres. They produce one or two generations per year and overwinter as pupae.
