The Erasmia Pulchera Chinesis is day-flying moth from Asia and has wings of electric blue, orange and neon green, from the Zygaenidae family of moths. The Japanese call it Satsumanishiki.
This lovely moth is one of the most sought-after specimens among collectors due to its vibrant colors.
Its wingspan reaches 2.6-3.4 inches. To see google images of this moth, click here.
Below is my interpretation of this rare moth. Using ink and watercolor on cold press 140lb watercolor paper, I used several reference images to re-create this beauty. To frame and display my version of the Erasmia Pulchera Chinesis, is cruelty free of course. I still have the original of this piece as well as fine art prints of her in my shop. Enjoy!
