You've just got to add this one to your collection!   This is one of the largest Silk Moths in the entire world and it's found only in Madagascar, an island off the coast of Africa.   Just look at those tails - what splendid markings and my oh my how about those giant eye spots!   Argema's are successfully being reared in captivity so these are terrific color and quality.   PLEASE NOTE:  Male abdomens sometimes flatten during shipping.  Also abdomens are oily and can stain the wings so they have been removed and included seperately so they can be de-oiled and reattached  (soak in Acetone for an hour and dry).  The cocoon is also shown.

COMET MOTH THIS IS SUPER MASSIVE AND VERY BEAUTIFUL. ONLY GRIPE IS THAT MINE IS MISSING ITS ABDOMEN - NOT A BIG DEAL BECAUSE IT CAN BE COVERED UP WITH THE REAR WINGS, BUT WOULD HAVE LIKED IT TO BE 100% Posted:
