Chrysiridia rhipheus (Madagascan sunset moth) / Madagascar


Madagascan sunset moth, a day-flying species of the Uraniidae family, is indigenous to Madagascar. Described in 1773, entomologist Dru Drury considered it a butterfly and put it in the Papilio genus. In 1823, Jacob Hubner identified it as a moth, placing it in the Chrysiridia genus.

Bright and colorful, mostly due to its wings, this moth generates an impressive and appealing appearance.
