Silver-striped Hawk-moth
Hippotion celerio

(Linnaeus, 1758) 1993 / 69.018

General comments:
Extremely infrequent immigrant, not seen in our area since 1958.

Hertfordshire Notes:
There are two Hertfordshire records. 'One at Waltham Cross' (Boyd, 1901) - Boyd was summarising records for the Cheshunt area and it is not possible to infer the year of the record from this entry; Arkley, one on 3rd October 1958 (T. G. Howarth). The record given by me for Oxhey in 1893 (Plant, 1993) in fact refers to an adult caught by H. Rowland-Brown at Oxhey Grove, near Harrow Weald, Middlesex (see Rowland-Brown, 1893).

Middlesex Notes:
Not recorded.
