Unidentified Moth
I took a picture of this huge moth (almost 6″ across) in the Mayan Riviera in Mexico in December 2005. It was sitting on the top doorframe of our hotel room. Can you identify it ??
Thanks,
Ron Boss

Hi Ron,
The Black Witch is a very common Noctuid Moth in Mexico. It is frequently found in the southern state, usually in the fall, and has been known to migrate as far north as Canada.
