Moth Group of mostly-nocturnal insects in the order Lepidoptera

Moths comprise a group of insects related to butterflies, belonging to the order Lepidoptera. Most lepidopterans are moths, and there are thought to be approximately 160,000 species of moth, many of which have yet to be described. Most species of moth are nocturnal, but there are also crepuscular and diurnal species.

Xyloryctidae family of insects

Xyloryctidae is a family of moths contained within the superfamily Gelechioidea described by Edward Meyrick in 1890. Most genera are found in the Indo-Australian region. While many of these moths are tiny, some members of the family grow to a wingspan of up to 66 mm, making them giants among the micromoths.

Alexey Diakonoff full name Alexey Nikolaievich Diakonoff was a Russian entomologist who specialised in Microlepidoptera.

The wingspan is 60–65 mm. The forewings are dark brownish purple, with a silky gloss, moderately mixed with whitish except along the costa. This mixing more distinct below the line formed by the upper edge of the cell and veins 7 and 8. The edges of the cell, a broad vertical bar along the closing vein, and narrow, less distinct streaks along the veins beyond the cell are scarcely mixed with white and the posterior third of the costal edge is indistinctly suffused with pale ochreous with three distant and very faint pale ochreous spots posteriorly, the termen with a series of roundish deep orange-brown spots, confluent, so as to form a complete band, strongly constricted at interspaces between the ends of the veins and gradually narrowed downwards, from the apex to above vein 3. The hindwings are glossy light greyish, towards the edge suffused with dark fuscous, the veins narrowly brownish. [2]

Wingspan distance from one wingtip to the other wingtip of an airplane or an animal (insect, bird, bat)

The wingspan of a bird or an airplane is the distance from one wingtip to the other wingtip. For example, the Boeing 777-200 has a wingspan of 60.93 metres, and a wandering albatross caught in 1965 had a wingspan of 3.63 metres, the official record for a living bird. The term wingspan, more technically extent, is also used for other winged animals such as pterosaurs, bats, insects, etc., and other fixed-wing aircraft such as ornithopters. In humans, the term wingspan also refers to the arm span, which is distance between the length from one end of an individual's arms to the other when raised parallel to the ground at shoulder height at a 90º angle. Former professional basketball player Manute Bol stands at 7 ft 7 in (2.31 m) and owns one of the largest wingspans at 8 ft 6 in (2.59 m).
