The Indian Moon moth, also known as the Actias selene, is a species of moth that is native to South and Southeast Asia. It is a member of the Saturniidae family, which includes some of the largest and most striking moths in the world.

The male Indian Moon moths are known for their bright pink colouration on the tips of their hind wings, which is not present in the females. This colouration is thought to be used to attract females for mating.
