Description

The Actias Ningpoana moth has an incredibly short lifespan of just a few days. This is a result of lacking functional mouthparts, relying on the energy it takes on as a caterpillar. The species have small heads and densely hairy bodies.

Adult Actias Ningpoana moths have a typical wingspan of 5.1-5.9 inches (13-15cm).

Our framed Actias Ningpoana moth specimens have been sourced responsibly. Find out more about where we source our butterflies and moths from.

How to display

This frame comes with a single brass hanging hook which can be screwed into the rear of the frame, allowing you to hang it on a wall.

Alternatively, the frame is deep enough to stand freely by itself on a shelf.

Where to display

To preserve the colours of your specimen, it's best not to display your frame in direct sunlight. You should also avoid areas of high moisture, such as bathrooms and kitchens.
