Broad-bordered bee hawk-moth -Hemaris fuciformis
is a moth of the family Sphingidae. It is found in North Africa, Europe (except northern Scandinavia) and central and eastern Asia. The wingspan is 38–48 millimetres (1.5–1.9 in). The moth flies from April to September depending on the location. The larvae feed on honeysuckle and Galium species.
Compared to H. tityus, H. fuciformis has a much broader marginal band to the wings, and the forewing’s discal cell is longitudinally divided by a fold.
