The Broad-bordered Bee Hawkmoth (Hemaris fuciformis) is a species of hawkmoth.

This day-flying moth is classed as Nationally Scarce B in Britain, inhabiting the South of the country. This species has clear wings, and a reddish border to them, which is broader than the border in the Narrow-bordered Bee Hawkmoth (H. tityus). Both species mimic bees, hence the name. The Broas-bordered Bee Hawkmoth has more black on the tip to the abdomen, and is slightly larger. Also more reddish than the Narrow-bordered Bee Hawkmoth.
