A nice surprise
I spotted this Hawkmoth resting by day on a granite boulder in a mountain valley last week (14/5/17) and thought it looked familiar but not quite right. The extra lines on the thorax indicate Hyles lineata (White-lined Hawkmoth). Unfortunately for Carmarthenshire moth'ers, I was in the southern Sierra Nevada, California at the time ;-)
