Birds, Leps, Observations & Generalities - the images and ramblings of Mark Skevington. Sometimes.

Monday, 1 June 2020


I've been busy, so in this here quiet interlude I'm gonna share these phone snaps that I found this evening whilst looking for something else .....

Don't recognise it?

You probably won't unless you've been to the Carribean. I found a load of these on Barbados, and they were huge. They were 30% bigger again than Death's-head Hawk larvae - and they're big!

These are Pseudosphinx tetrio, sometimes know as the Frangipani Hornworm amongst other vernaculars that on Martinique includes the rasta caterpillar ...

These larvae look a whole lot more exciting than the adult moth though, a grey-brown hawk with nothing special about it.
