A common moth in Eastern North America. Luna moths have successive broods, and caterpillars feed on a variety of trees including Sweetgum and Walnut.
The last brood overwinters as a cocoon, either attached to a twig or most commonly in the leaf litter. Wandering caterpillars looking to cocoon for the winter can sometimes be found off their host plants in fall, and appear orangish green.
A classic and beautiful member of the moon moth family.
Forewing is standard. Hindwing with tail is available, but not pictured
Wings have a gorgeous epoxy resin finish on each side.
For earrings, choose .925 Sterling Silver or hypoallergenic niobium earwires. Niobium is less shiny and contains no nickel. See picture.
