I have a nice one spotted you should check it out. Its big but the Luna is even bigger!
Yes, that is the size. 5-6 inches. WOW! 100-150 mm Wingspan.
Awesome and congratulations! Please take a look at my moths when you have the time. Many Silk Moths, but not this one as mentioned.
Looks like you IDd it correctly. Thanks!
Ontario, Canada. It was the largest moth I've ever seen. From nose to wingtip must have been 5 to 6 inches.
The coloring is different in your photo, but the markings are the same in the ID I gave. This one I really want to find.
It is definitely a kind of silk moth native to your area.
Cool! I haven't come across this one. What country are you in?
