Saturniid Moth

Antheraea broschi

Description:

This moth was about 10cm in wingspan. Brown, orange and red in colour. The "eyes" on the wings are see-through!!! Check out when moth is on the street and when in bushes! There are 4 "eyes". One on each of the wings.

Habitat:

Jungle area near Thai/ Malaysia border. Hot/ humid/

Notes:

We found this moth on the street where all the cars crossed the border. It was in Malaysia :-) We picked it up gently and put it on the bushes at the side of the road where it immediately maneuvered itself INTO the bush.

I agree, thanks.
I am having lots of trouble manipulating the order of my photos. I am on mobile as I am traveling and I do not seem to be able to control it. :-(

I would suggest that you take the last shot as #1.

It is a Saturniid Moth, not a Hawk Moth. Saturniidae, Saturniinae, Antheraea broschi, male (!). Unfortunately the scalloped wings are not visible on the picture.
