Its wingspan is about 6cm (measured with a ruler). Bigger than those average I caught before. Most curious that I literally forgot its pupa that was left in the soil on a sill with no any care. Whatsoever, one morning I just saw it sitting over there!

What do you mean "big"? The photo doesn't disclose its real size hence we can't rely on but Vasily's info. :)

A big one.
