Southern Emperor Moth (Saturnia pavoniella) photographed in Corfu

31/03/2021 Jane Barry

This female moth was found on the coast road from Roda to Acharavi, in the extreme north of Corfu. On first appearances it seemed dead, so we carefully moved it to a safe environment. I'm delighted to be the first to photograph and submit an adult sighting of this species in Corfu.
