It has a wingspan of ca. 27 cm, making it the largest moth found in Australia, and its wings have the largest documented surface area (300 square centimeters) of any living insect. Moths often have feather like antennae with no club at the end. When perched, their wings lay flat. Moths tend to have thick hairy bodies and more earth tone coloured wings.
Moths are usually active at night and rest during the day in a preferred wooded habitat.
