The Spider Queen instructed the Moon Moth to lead Brian safely through her twisty rooted tunnels and up, up into the barren lands..
Now, I absolutely know this isn’t a moon moth, but it came into my living room last night and gave me an idea of how to get Brian out of the tunnels, so it promptly got photographed and now Brian is on his way!! If anyone DOES know what kind of moth it is I would love to know..it was so beautiful..and large!

Thanks to Alma’s Brian, I now know what moth this is! Here it the description from Wickipedia
This is a large (wingspan 50–62 mm), impressive moth, remarkably butterfly-like. All parts of the adult are bright white marked with faint buffish fascia. The species gets its common name from pointed projections on the termen of the hindwing with brownish spots at their base. It flies at night in June and July 1 and is attracted to light, sometimes in large numbers.
The brown, twig-like larva feeds on a variety of trees and shrubs including elder, hawthorn, honeysuckle and ivy . The species overwinters as a larva.
