(KGTV) — An image making the rounds on social media claims to show a Nun Moth.

The insect appears to have a nightmarish face reminiscent of the 2018 horror film The Nun.

Many people are insisting this is an authentic insect.

But while Nun Moths" really do exist, the image is a fake.

The real Nun Moth has a distinctive black and white pattern, but nothing resembling the screaming face being sent around.

The fake image is the work of an English artist who created a series of imaginary insects based on elements of pop culture.
