I have seen them lose their coloring later in life so this may be an old moth. If you look up in the corner of its wing you will see a very faint tinting sugesting that in its prime it was a very beautiful bright green in colo. This stage is just as beautiful but not as comonly photographed, for they are not found until after death most of the time and reclaimed by nature.

I don't think this is albino. What is likely going on here is that this is a very worn specimen. Was it alive? These often become very pale at the end of their lives or after they die.
