Polyphemus moth on a black background

The polyphemus moth, Antheraea polyphemus (Cramer), is one of our largest and most beautiful silk moths. It can be distinguished by its colouring that varies from pale to dark brown and is sometimes reddish or greyish. Each of its wings has a small, scale-less "window" called an eyespot. The eyespots on its front wings are oval and encircled in yellow. The eyspots on its back wings, with yellow, dark blue and black borders, look like large eyes. Its abdomen is covered with reddish-brown hairs
