This is an uncommon large Saturniidae moth called the Antheraea celebensis which has a wingspan of approximately 11cm. This species may not be beautiful but its orange body powdered with light grey makes it magnificent and unique. Have dots like other Saturniids.
Lives in the lowland rainforest of Maliau Basin. I found this in the veranda of MBSC dining hall. Tawau is one of the few places where this species can be found.
Hooray! My last Spotting from Maliau Basin, the 84th spotting from Maliau Basin. It looks like I will be changing my profile picture back into my old one. This is the first Antheraea celebensis spotting in Project Noah. >>>Map accuracy : 5km diameter.
