Lime Hawk-moth

At Pwll, on the western outskirts of Llanelli, I usually get a lime hawk-moth about this time of year in my moth trap. There are no lime trees in the vicinity but there are plenty of elms (Ulmus glabra and U. procera/minor) and it is the latter that I suspect in the food of its caterpillars locally.
