I was unable to find a species which had four definitively dark lines on the forewing. Many of them had the third line down from the top faded.

Shares a lot of similarities with Arguda insulindiana.
Could this be a Lasiocampidae species?

I had thought this was a photo of a leaf as I scrolled though the list, only to later glimpse the name! I'm astounded by this beautiful creature. Nature is always bound to surprise us. Great shot!
