NatureServe Conservation Status
Rounded Global Status Rank: G5 - Secure
Reasons: Described as a "pest" and "one of our commonest hawkmoths" (Covell, 1984; Holland, 1915). This highly vagile species may be less susceptible to habitat loss or alteration than species with low vagility.
Other Considerations: Relatively highly vagile adults can be recorded far from breeding and larval habitats.
