I'm not sure if the developers had a specific species in mind when they created it, but they very well could have.

I'm probably wrong, but to me, it most somewhat resembles a Convolvulus Hawk Moth.

Moths scare the hell outta me *shivers*... But why would you like to know? It's a rather interesting question.

The Moth that Harry fights has similar powers to the Mosura Sub-Species.

I never even gave it two thoughts of what species of moth it was. I'm terrified of them so when it comes in SH1 I just try to kill it as fast as I can

I really don't understand why people are so scared of moths. They can be just as beautiful (if not more so) as butterflies, and the only way I know of them being able to harm you is if you eat them...

As for the species, I'm not sure really. I disagree with Flashbulb, because the top and bottom wings are quite clearly separated during the battle.

Why not try posting a pic of the boss on a lepidopterist forum? They'll probably be able to answer your question - That is, if it actually is a real species.

it doesn't resemble any real-life moth i've ever seen. i don't think they were aiming for a specific specie.

@Fudgestix: Please don't talk about eating moths. But i agree, they are as beautyful as butterflies


I guess this moth boss is related to mothra. It's the closest match i have seen so far.

I also think that they've based it on several species and mixed it together or made one of their own. I could be easily wrong though...

How are moths ugly? I see them as delicate, beautiful creatures on the same level as butterflies. Plus, Silk Moths give us silk, but butterflies don't. But that's just because I like raising my cute little children Silk Worms into Silk Moths and letting them go free to populate the world with more Silk Moths :)

Anyone who would actually look up the species of the moth is obsessed. Congrats, guys. This is pretty awesome and useful to me. Thanks for looking for pictures. It does kinda look like it. I'm being serious.

I've always thought it wasn't based on any one species, but I suppose the artists would use one as a reference. Those photos are fairly similar, though.

At primary school we had silk worms. :) But then we harvested their cocoons for the silk, and the worms died. :( Poor things.

As for the moth boss, I think it's very similar to the pictures posted previously, but it was probably changed and distorted by the otherworld and Alessia's nightmares. Like already mentioned by SH#1fan, it seems to have a stinger. I'm not an expert on moths, but I'm pretty sure they don't have stingers (at least not the ones I've seen).

Moth’s don’t have stings, or toxins (none that I’m aware of, at least), so I’m guessing none.

I don't think the specific species of the moth matters, it's more about what moths symbolize in general.

When I was a little kid my dad told me something freaky (and untrue) about the wing dust on moths. I don't even remember what it was exactly, other than my mom telling me a while later that he was full of it, but I'm kind of freaked out when they're flying around me because of it still.
