The same high quality as our Butterfly poster, our laminated 'Moths of the World' poster is a must-have for anyone interested in insects or (obviously) moths. This strikingly colorful & beautiful poster now has a companion which uses the same graphic design, resulting in a visually striking matched set. The Lepidoptera order / clade contains the butterflies and moths. There are over 180,000 known species. In general, butterflies fly during the day and moths fly at night. The most obvious physical difference between them is the feelers, or antennae. Most butterflies have thin slender filamentous ones which are club-shaped at the end. Moths, on the other hand, often have comb-like or feathery antennae, or ones that are filamentous and unclubbed. We often think of the moth as the little brown pest that likes to eat our clothes, but the "night butterflies" include some of the most spectacular lepidoptera. Some of the species are huge. The Giant Peacock Moth, Saturnia pyri, has a ten-inch wingspan. All posters are printed on very heavy, high-quality paper. It is also a very hard paper that preserves tiny details. Posters are then specially coated to provide a satin finish that reduces glare and enhances their presentation. These are the same high standards used to produce expensive art prints. Artists are selected on the basis of their illustration skills and their knowledge of the subject. Many have both art and science degrees. This ensures an accurate presentation of the subject. This poster is laminated and, therefore, requires no frame. All posters measure 24" x 36". This standard size fits inexpensive, off the shelf frames if you wish to frame this poster.
