Hi
Could someone identify this moth for me
I'm guessing it's one of the Hawk moth family
but no sure which one.

Thanks

 With the "humbug" eyes it certainly looks like Anacridium aegypticum. I didn't realise other species had those eyes.

In case anyone is interested, I finally tracked down an ID and it is Acanthacris ruficornis or Brown-headed Grasshopper.  I think it's a type of locust.

Hi Andy,

Thanks for your suggestion.

As far as I have been able to find out, the St. Mark´s flies emerge in April, and this was late autumn.  Perhaps the Andalucian species behave differently? (Are they here at all?).

I was starting to think that perhaps Clive was right after all. I have got lots of ants crawling along in the same place!

Saludos
Petrea

PS: Happy to see Iberianatureforum up and running again. I had given it up after not been able to access for a long time. I even deleted the bookmark!!! 

PSS: Ooups, where did the smileys go (fortunately, I´ve saved one!)

Hi,

They look like St.Mark's Flies (Bibionidae).

Cheers

Photographed late September in La Janda.  It was even bigger than the Egyptian Grasshopper.  Despite trawling through over half of the photos in grasshoppersofeurope.com, I haven't been able to ID it yet, so hope someone here can help, please.
