Erebid Moth: Erebus macrops

Dear Deear,
This impressive moth is classified as an Owlet Moth,
Erebus macrops on the Richard Seaman Wallpaper site, but we believe it is classified with the North American Black Witch Ascalapha odorata, placed in Erebidae.  These are long lived moths that have been known to migrate thousands of miles for no discernible reason.
