Made famous by the movie “Silence of the Lambs”, this framed death head moth is recognizable by the skull shaped marking on its thorax. The scientific name for this distinctive moth is derived from the mythological Greek rivers Acheron, the river of pain, and Styx, the river separating the Earth from the Underworld. These species have also be observed raiding beehives of different species of honey bee for honey.
