Moths Part Three

Moths Part Three

This time I’m going to post about two separate species! Actias Luna (Luna moth) and Actias Dubernardi (Chinese Moon Moth.)

These two moths are part of the same family so they have a lot of things in common. Both are silk moths and have beautiful tails on their lower set of wings. The Actias family is very big and there are moths all over the world that belong to it. Most Actias moths create a cocoon out of a mixture of silk and leaves at the base of a tree just before the cold months. Sometimes you can find them when you’re raking leaves!
