Acherontia lachesis

Death Head Moth - Asia

5" x 7" black, shadow box frame

These moths are easily distinguishable by the vaguely human skull-shaped pattern of markings on the thorax. Death Head Moths have the ability to emit a loud squeak if irritated. The sound is produced by expelling air from the pharynx, often accompanied by flashing of the brightly colored abdomen in a further attempt to deter predators. These are commonly observed raiding beehives of different species of honey bee for hone. They can move about in hives without being disturbed because they mimic the scent of the bees.
