Female - The African moon or lunar moth (Argema mimosae) is a giant silk moth of the Family Saturniidae.
This moth can be found near the east coast of South Africa. An adult can measure 10-12 centimetres across its wingspan, and 12-14 centimetres from head to the tip of its elongated 'tail-like' second pair of wings. Its forward wings have a distinctive grey-coloured 'furry' leading edge, giving a very rough surface, presumably for aerodynamic reasons.
The moth does not eat after emerging from its cocoon and lives about 10 days
Species: A. mimosae.
