The male has a wingspan of twenty centimeters (8") and a tail span of fifteen centimeters (6"), making it one of the world's largest silk moths. They don't feed and only live 4 or 5 days.
Saw this moth at the campground at Ranomafana national park. One day it was alive, the next day dead. Many large moths don't feed and only live for less than a week.
