Attacus atlas (Atlas moth) / Asia

The Atlas moth is a large saturniid moth endemic to the forests of Asia.

It is the world’s largest moth in terms of their wing surface area, and second largest by wingspan (only next to the white witch moth).

These dazzlingly elegant and beautiful creatures are known for their multicoloured wings that give them their characteristic bright looks.

The Atlas moths are named after Atlas, the Titan of Greek mythology due to their size.

In Hong Kong, the Cantonese means "snake's head moth", referring to the prominent extension of the forewing that resembles the head of a snake.
