Luna Moth ( Pupa )

Actias Luna


My brother went to Pennsylvana, to visit some of his relatives . While there, he went into the woods, to find interesting things of nature, to photograph. When he came back home, he gave me three, Luna Moth cocoons, and the pupa, of one other Moth species. The color of the Luna Moth Pupae, was different shades of a reddish brown color. One Luna Moth pupa, was one inch long, and one half of an inch wide.


The habitat at you will most often find the Luna Moth, is deciduous woodlands, in North America.


The foliage of trees, like birch, willow, alder, walnut, persimmon, and sweet gum, are the food, that the Larva feed off of.
