Bee Hawk Identification

Bellow are photos of England's two "Bee Hawk Moths", you will see several distinguishing features, in particular you will notice the dark brown (almost black) banding on the abdomen of the Narrow Bordered Bee Hawk.

While in the case of the Broad Bordered Bee Hawk the same band is much paler - the colour being almost burgundy.

While studying these moths you should also note the difference between the thickness of the darker boarder of the wing's (not always visible when the moth is in flight!).
