He's a hairy fella ain't he?!
It surely is a Automeris sp., but I don't think it is a io. Other species of Automeris can be found in Central and South America, you know: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/142...
Hey Jellis and Victoria, Wikipedia says this species (Automeris io) is only found in North America, and this one was spotted in Costa Rica. Is that possible? Thanks
not sure I can pinpoint the exact but it is in the Saturniidae family close to the Automeris io
