Death's-head Hawk Moth (also death's-head hawkmoth) is a name used to refer to any one of three species of moth characterised by thorax markings that form a shape reminiscent of a human skull.[1]

The final step in making the Animagus potion involves adding a Death's-head Hawk Moth chrysalis to the phial containing the prepared mixture, then leaving it in a dark, undisturbed location until a lightning storm.[2]

During the 1980s, Jacob's sibling helped Talbott Winger search the office of Argus Filch for the chrysalis of a Death's-head Hawk Moth in preparation for making an animagus potion.[3]
