For the photo, it is a great stretch of the night. It is the largest butterfly in Europe. It is 10 to 15 centimetres wide.
It had been located in the Ile-De-France, or it has become rather rare.
We can see even in the garden of paris (of the time). It can still be seen to the south of the country. This is not the butterfly-the largest butterfly in the world. (Attacus Atlas 30cm long).

Excellent photo, thank you for this site allowed me to fill a gap, these butterflies are often eaten by bats attracted to the lighting at the corner of our house in Provence.

But pity not to see him with wings spread, I have two, found in a church steeple, and in fairly good preservation ...

I managed to catch one that was on the sidewalk while returning from college with a girlfriend and I we decided to keep it.

Thank you, thanks to you we were able to identify that beautiful butterfly that hangs in our window last night. (Nièvre).

Superb! And very impressive when you see it in real! But apparently rare (or at least rarely visible).
> Chasseur pap >Reply May 17, 2009
Thank you, I wanted the race of a butterfly into my house, I just find it thanks to you.
> Elkinox >Reply May 10, 2009
I just found in my garden (Nord-Isère) a specimen of this beautiful butterfly. It was never seen. I needed some time to identify it.
> Cristobal >Reply Apr 13, 2009
I also wanted the name. The wings developed more eyes can see 4. I will try to get my picture.

This picture corresponds exactly to our observations this evening. We were able to see our maple trees and four beautiful grand peacock of the night of 13 to 16 cm wide and 5 to 6 cm wide. It was great !

Beautiful photo and beautiful specimen. I had the chance to see one in the month of April 2007 at the Cluny. I was looking for his name. Here it is done. Thank you !

Tela-butterflies launching a national survey in 2007 and for three years on this butterfly, please apply !

I just published this evening a picture that reminds of fort. It seems to be the same kind, and this is the first time that I saw one of this size, as I am born in the countryside, I grew up and still has a woodland rich in wildlife, including butterflies of every kind, precisely because of the flowers.
> Noratou >Reply Apr 25, 2007
I have seen one (a?) yesterday afternoon, by land, to La Tour du Pin, on the edge of a parking lot. He (she) was not dead, (e), but not very alive either. There were four ocelli. The size was impressive, and it was magnificent, lined with gold. Why this one only has two eyespots ?

To respond to the ocelli: I just see a big peacock night (thank you to EIF, where I found the name of the butterfly). When resting, it is only two ocelli (the specimen I saw was then 10 cm wide). For against, when it is disturbed, it spreads its wings, revealing 2 additional ocelli.

Saturnia pyri (young male). If you see this moth, attracted by your lights, turn them off. His week of life is spent as a reproductive... The female emits at a dozen km to the round (one of the most long-range pheromones of the living world).

Hello, if this butterfly has such a scale, I believe that it is the sphynx had the head of a death, there should be a photo of the head of the butterfly. Friendly.
> Wop [G] [P] [C] >Reply Aug 05, 2006
It is a night moth, the largest in the world in its category : I have also found the same in my garden today, it is still with me but under frame !
> Mimi [G] [P] [C] [F] >Reply Aug 05, 2006
Nice photo Topfunimage, it looks like the butterfly is watching us and if we have done something wrong, we jump on it ? Lol !
> Le fan belfortain [G] [P] [C] [F] >Reply Aug 04, 2006
Very beautiful and large moth, the Great peacock of the night (Saturnia pyri) is very beautiful with its gray-brown, with patterns of roses, its white border and on each wing, a large ocellus, recalling the designs of a peacock. He attended all the open areas and orchards. Beautiful photo.

Waww, I have big in my gallery, but then It is superb !!! As said MARCEL... But congratulations anyway to show us this wonder.
> Marcel >Reply Aug 04, 2006
It is a 'great peacock of night'. A few faults of youth : the net is not very good, and the subject dead centered !
