General information about White-lined Sphinx Moth :

White-lined Sphinx Moth is a colorful large moth with striped wings.

Member of the Hawk Moth Family. This family includes moths that have evolved the ability to hover. Only three other nectar-feeding creatures have obtained this ability.

White-lined Sphinx Moths are related to Hummingbird Hawk moths (Macroglossum stellatarum), the moth most mistaken for hummingbirds.

These moths are extremely agile flyers. They can instantly swing from side to side while hovering. They can also fly extremely fast. Some have been clocked at over 30 miles an hour.

The adult White-Lined Sphinx moth loves to eat Sages, Evening Primrose, and many other flowers.

He mostly comes out after dark, after it rains for a few days.
