Madagascar This is a very delicate and the long tails of the males often break off after just a few flights in the wild. Like many silkmoths, adult Comet Moths emerge from their cocoons with no ability to feed, lacking the necessary proboscis. Consequently, their short adult life seems to be exclusively for breeding. For this reason, the males are equipped with antennae that are so sensitive, they can detect mere molecules of female pheromones miles away.
