Deaths Head Hawk Moth

Regular price $165.00

Acherontia Styx, also known as the bee robber, is very fond of honey and bee keepers have reported finding dead moths in their hives as a result of bee stings. This species can be found in Asia.

In spite of negative superstitions attached to this hawkmoth, they're actually quite harmless and are only minor pests to beehives and crops.

The background photo was taken by MyMy Butterfly inside the mausoleum at Westview Cemetery in Atlanta, Georgia.

The specimen is encased in a 9 x 9“ frame.
