The Chrysiridia rhipheus or sunset moth has a wingspan of 7-9 centimeters (2.8 - 3.5 in) and it is endemic to Madagascar. Often mistaken for a butterfly, the wings of the moth contain layers and air gaps that are narrower than the wavelength of visible light. The structure varies from one layer at the proximal end of each scale, to about six layers at the distal end. This multilayer structure strongly reflects certain wavelengths of light, which are determined by the thicknesses of the layers and the angle at which the light hits the scale. Many of which can not be seen by the naked eye.
