With pine green forewings and deep red hindwings, this moth of the Nolidae family called Clethrophora distincta is the perfect mascot for Christmas. It kind of looks like a Christmas tree when its red hindwings are tucked underneath, too! It’s the ultimate Christmas moth.

Merry X-mas Eve everyone!
