The strange-looking moth, which freaked out thousands of netizens last week, was found by an Indonesian man in his home.
After capturing a video of the insect, Facebook user Gandik, from Semarang, Central Java, uploaded the clip on his page for everyone else to see.
The clip has been shared over 200,000 times, accumulating over 40,000 comments in the span of one week.
As the moth is not the type usually seen by many, a majority of commenters expressed a mix of terror and disgust for the creature.
Neither a Pokemon nor an alien creature, the unfamiliar insect was soon identified as a species of arctiine moth called Creatonotos Gangis, which is reportedly found in SouthEast Asia and northern Australia.
