I am willing to bet that it was..at least it could have been.i heard there was a giant moth in Borneo....???? i was watching a nature show about how elusive they are that wouldn't be it would it??
umm i belive they said this particular moth posses a 12" Proboscis???? i dont know much moth anatomy lol but thats big....I am willing to bet that it was..at least it could have been.
they certainly are elusive throughout their range..and like many Saturnids, are hard to get in areas where they are fairly common.
that would be it!! thanksyou might be talking about this:
its pretty neat, Darwin noticed that there were flowers that were a foot long, so he hypothesized that there must be a moth with a 12 inch proboscis because nothing else would be able to feed from and pollinate the flower. Most scientists at the time called him crazy, but lo and behold, look what exists.
edit: sorry that was so off topic, I didn't mean to try and steal your thunder ted. Your moths are absolutely incredible!. Where are they native to?
