Similar to the American Moon Moth, as it's in the same family of "Actias," but the Chinese Moon Moth adds some serious WOW to this family of moths.
Both male and female of this species have long tails, but the male of the species has wonderful pink coloration dominating its wings. The female is a beautiful green with some pink elements through the tails.
Native to the mountain forests of China, the larvae feed on pine trees.
A very exotic and hard to find member of the moon moth family.
