White Witch Moth (Thysania agrippina)
… a large moth in the family Noctuidae. Also called Birdwing Moth, Ghost Moth, Great Grey Witch, and Great Owlet Moth. It has a wingspan of up to 12 inches (31 cm), making it the Lepidopteran with the largest wingspan. (The Atlas moth, however, has a greater wing area.)
The species occurs in Mexico, Central and South America, but it appears as a stray as far north as Texas. Based on reports for sister species Thysania zenobia that feeds on Senna and Cassia, the larval host plants for the White Witch are probably also woody Fabaceae (subfamily Caesalpinioideae)…
