Hello, Mr. Bugman.
My friend saw this moth on the wall on her home in Hawaii. She asked me what it was. I’m from Arizona, so it’s nothing I’ve ever seen before. She said it must have been 5-6 inches across.
Thank you very much!
Tell your friend this is a Black Witch, and a good source for information is the Texas Entomology page called The Black Witch Moth: Its Natural & Cultural History. Your submission will go live in early June during our holiday away from the office.
