Winged Beast

Mothra's got some competition. This mini aircraft of a moth flew into the underside of Matt's porch at his place in south Texas. It measured in with a 7 1/4 inch wingspan.

Is there anyone out there that can identify this winged beast? I'm sure Matt and his girlfriend would like some assurance that his house isn't being invaded by a fledgling gargantuan. Tokyo wouldn't mind some reassurance either, for that matter.

Thanks for the photos, Matt.

The size description alone leads me to believe it's either one of the Saturniid species of moths, or one of the Sphinx moth species. They're about as close to Mothra as you can get! But without a clear picture of the wing pattern, I can't tell which type it is. Can the picture-taker provide more detailed info about the wings? Like the color, any spots or splotches, and their shape...? That would help tremendously! :-)

Denita beat me to it but yeah, without a good look at the wing-patterns I wouldn't try to narrow the I.D. any further. I can tell you that it looks like a female, nto that it narrows things AT ALL. :D

Possibly a sphynx moth. Hard to tell from this view.

sometimes you can go to earn the mabinogi gold for your own life and you can also get a lot of happiness in the game if you play the game well. you can brush the cheap mabinogi to upgrade and then you are very strong. You think that you want to play the game well and then you can get the mabinogi money for your own. you can go to buy mabinogi gold alone and you can give some for your friends; it can make you very happy I think. As long as you play the game you can get the mabinogi online gold as the rewards in this game.

I knew the Metin2 gold so I always try my best to earn them more and more to make myself strong. I have never played the game before, at the beginning I did not know what is so I went to kill the monsters with the Metin2 yang that I earned with myself in the game. I will duty bound to a friend to help brush the Cheap metin2 yang together with my friends. I spend a good relationship is then fly to tears. If my levels are very high, I can go to Buy metin2 gold more and more and I will not depend on my friends to help me to earn them. I get some Cheap metin2 gold as the gifts to encourage me.
