About 2-3cm long, brown colouring similar to an Elephant hawkmoth too small to be a Large elephant hawkmoth and no red dots as seen on Small elephant hawkmoths. Found in garden on dirt pile eating some thrown out spring onion leaves, don't know if it was an accidental occurrence or not. Around 5.30 pm today. Aoplogies for the bad photo!

Looked at the spring onion because had just seen a hummingbird hawkmoth near it.
