The Attacus atlas or “Atlas Moth” is commonly considered to be the largest moth in the world with wingspans as large at 12 inches!  These moths can be found in southeast Asia and are sometimes cultivated for their silk although very different than commercial grade silk.  Atlas moths are brownish red in color with triangular clear windows and curved wingtips that mimic the head of a snake.  This specimen is preserved in a riker or cotton backed frame.  A true beauty to add to any collection!
