White-lined Sphinx Moth

White-lined Sphinx Moth (Hyles lineata). This species, in the family Sphingidae and subfamily Macroglossinae, typically has a wingspan of 6.3 - 9 centimeters. Their wide habitat range includes deserts, suburbs, and gardens. The moths feeds on nectar of many plant species, including columbines, larkspurs, petunias, honeysuckle, moonvine, lilac, clovers, thistles and Jimpson weed. Adults are usually active at dusk and dawn. Caterpillars pupate in shallow burrows in the ground. Caterpillar plant hosts include four o'clock (Mirabilis), apple (Malus), evening primrose (Oenothera), elm (Ulmus), grape (Vitis), tomato (Lycopersicon), purslane (Portulaca) and Fuschia. Occasional outbreaks of the caterpillars have damaged tomato, grape and garden crops in Utah.
