Nicotiana glauca (tree tobacco); adopted habit and leaves. Note green morph larva of the endemic hawkmoth Manduca blackburni (Lepidoptera, Sphingidae). Kahului, Maui, Hawaii, USA. April, 2013. Were it not for the presence of this ‘invasive’ plant, the threatened M. blackburni would be close to extinction on Hawaii. It has almost totally transferred its larval feeding habits from a now rare native Nothocestrum species to N. glauca and other introduced Solanaceae.
