The actual size of this beast is about 2.5" long. I have no idea what type of moth it is and we have no reactors around here so...

Nice one, I think this is a striped hawk-moth, hyles livornica,

in Europe extremely rare.

congrats

Anyone want to help identify mine? Once you get up close he looks pretty cuddly.
