Caption: Chinese oak tussar (Antheraea pernyi) moth eye spot. Close-up showing an eye spot on the wing of a Chinese oak tussar moth. Eye spots such as these are thought to divert the attention of predators away from a moth's actual eyes. The caterpillars of this moth are used to produce tussah silk (wild silk).
