Europe's largest moth: Japanese Oak Silkmoth (Antheraea yamamai). Its wing span is 11-15 cm.
Originally it lived only in Japan, but it was imported into Europe I think in the middle of the 20th century. A few of them escaped from the farm where they were hosted, and since then it widespread in a few CEE countries, living on oak leaves
