This stunning creature is the Atlas Moth (Attacus atlas), the largest moth in the world in terms of wing surface area. Their wingspan can reach up to ONE FOOT in length! They're said to be named after either the Titan of Greek Mythology which holds up the Earth, or because of the map-like patterns on the wings.
The Madagascan sunset moth or simply sunset moth, is a day-flying moth. It is considered to be one of the most impressive and beautiful Lepidoptera. It is very colourful, though the iridescent parts of the wings do not have pigment; rather the colours originate from optical interference. Adult moths have a wingspan of 3–3½ in.
