Item details


My personal favorite that I raise, and one that is native to California: the polyphemus moth (Antheraea polyphemus). Pinned and framed with a white, linen paper backing in a dark brown frame.

This moth was spread and mounted with love and care! Each specimen can vary slightly in appearance, so it might differ from the actual photo.

The frame is 5x7, constructed of actual aged barn wood, is hand-painted dark brown and coated with a clear sealer, and comes with a saw tooth hook.

Frame dimensions:
Exterior: 8" x 6” (1.75” thick)
Interior: 6.5” x 4.5”

Each specimen is different, so the wingspan varies in size from 4.5” to 6.5”.

**All of my specimens are obtained legally and are ethically sourced.**

All of my specimens are shipped with care instructions on the best practices for preserving them, ensuring that they last you a lifetime!

All of my specimens are placed in a relaxing chamber with heavy cleaning agents prior to being pinned in order to prevent mold growth and/or bug infestation. However, sometimes this is unpreventable, depending on its storage and/or display environment.

Unfortunately, I cannot replace your insect if any damage occurs due to environmental factors such as high humidity or extended exposure to sunlight, as I don't have control over these conditions.
I do my *absolute* best to pack the frames with as much protective material as possible, and cover the box with "fragile" stickers, but sadly, this still can happen in transit.

I offer free repairs and/or replacements if you take a photo of the frame ***within 24 hours*** of receiving your order.

In this case, I cannot provide a full refund, but am willing to negotiate a replacement or offer a free repair, provided that the specimen is safely shipped back to me (I'll cover the return postage).
Customs fees/duty taxes/VAT (Value Added Tax) are the buyer's responsibility and are paid by you to your customs department. I have no way of collecting this tax or have anything to do with this tax, as it is solely based on your Country and Customs. I mark all my packages as "artwork" and put the invoiced value on them.

UK customers: Please be aware, the import threshold is low for your country and they do regularly charge this fee on packages. This link will give a bit more information - https://www.gov.uk/goods-sent-from-abroad/tax-and-duty

Refunds will *not* be given if packages are not called for or refused because of import taxes being levied.
