Hi Blue Scarab! This is an Attacus lorquinii. The Attacus atlas has a small white pin above the triangular pattern on its forewing as shown on this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attacus_atl.... We made the same mistake before in our spotting :) Please consider adding this beautiful spotting and photo to our mission "Moths in the Philippines" at http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1591.... Thanks!
