Actias luna, also known as the Luna Moth, is a pale-green, Saturniid moth in the subfamily Saturniinae. It has a wingspan of up to four and a half inches, making it one of the largest moths in North America. The Luna moth cocoon is large as well measuring up to 3 inchs at times. When moved or handled, the moth inside will wiggle within its pupal case, producing a noise. Pupation takes approximately two weeks unless the individual is in diapause.
