Largest Moth in the world – Witch Moth

I have three specimens available of the Framed White Witch Moth available on my ETSY store. This insect has the longest wingspan of any insect in the world and when flying, this moth is often mistaken as a bat. Their brilliant patterns and white to gold-ish coloring helps it blend in marvelously with their surroundings. Mayan people call the moth Mah-Ha-Na, which means, “May I borrow your house?” – an allusion to this moth frequently entering people’s houses. This specimen is from South America.
