Macroglossum is a species of Sphingidae. The three common species found in Hong Kong are M. pyrrhosticta, M. varigatum and M. heliophila. They have long proboscis and hover at the flowers when they feed, thus they are called Hummingbird Hawk Moth in the U.S. and Bee Moths in Europe.

They are very small and fast and unpredictable in flight path.

The long proboscis of this moth is laden with pollen.
