This is a Rain Moth, which I saw today for the first time since moving to Perth. I read that they have a wingspan of 140mm for the male and 160mm for the female.
I saw it on the road and thought it was a bat or something. I think it was in the last throws of dying.

i need something to compare it with for the size... but i do remember a moth beating against the window at my mom's that was as big as a bat or a small bird, it was terrifying!!!

Yeah I know, I was so amazed by the thing I forgot to put my pen down beside it as a comparison. But please take my word for it, (honest John, everybody's friend :-) ), it was as big as I imagine the one you describe to be.
