Urania ripheus also known as The Sunset Moth.
One of the most unique and colourful moths native to Madagascar. When fluttering its colourful wings create an almost kaleidoscopic effect. Even though the wings lack pigment, in bright light the moth to a human eye looks extremely colourful. This is caused by the special structure of its wings which create this optical illusion.
Wingspan – 9.5 cm (3.74″)
