Description

Actias isis from Sulawesi, Indonesia.  

The male has some of the richest colouring of all the world's Moon Moths. Both sexes are giant. The female is even larger and is bright yellow, with large moon-like markings. Her tails are stockier and shorter.

The larvae can be reared out of season on evergreen Portuguese Laurel Prunus lusitanica, or Eucalyptus gunii. They have also been known to accept Strawberry Tree Arbutus unedo.

In summer probably the best foodplant is Sweet Gum Liquidambar styraciflua. Other reported foodplants include Oak, Strawberry and Hawthorn. 

Actias isis  is very seldom available.
