Thysania agrippina is a species of moth in the family Erebidae first described by Pieter Cramer in 1776.
The most commonly accepted English name is the "White witch". Thysania agrippina is a competitor for title of "largest insect". This may be true by the measure of wingspan—a Brazilian specimen with a wingspan of almost 30 cm (12 in) appears to hold the record. The "White witch" occurs from Uruguay to Mexico. One story of the derivation of the common name: early naturalists collected specimens of birds and bats with shotguns. An enormous darting flyer high in the canopy was a tempting target. Firing a cloud of pellets at a "White witch" moth did not necessarily bring it down, however, because the body is small relative to the wing area.
Very hard to find nowadays this perfectly beautiful specimen from Peru.
