Large moth, wingspan 90-95 mm(measurment was taken this time), eye-like pattern on its forewing and beautiful intricate bands and waves that creates a 3D pattern towards the outer edges of the wings. Spotted outdoors at 8 pm Sri Lanka time, it was attracted by the outdoor and indoor lights as I got the picture inside after much chasing.
Village, close to wild jungle.
Captured it and introduced it to the outdoors after seeing many geckos eyeing the moth. Can't find any concervation status on this species.
