Silk moth (saturniids ), found resting on wall early in the morning (just past sunrise). Likely attracted to the florescent lighting. With thanks to Bill Oehlke, who identified this specimen for me.
Low coastal jungle
I have been unable to find any living images of this species other than my own; I have them posted with Bill Oehlke's World's Largest Saturnid Site (by subscription) and have posted them here to hopefully help anyone else who encounters this lovely species of silk moth.
