Thanks Donna and Debbie. I think the horned devil name comes from the way the caterpillar looks. There a picture of the caterpillar on this website: http://www.actias.de/index.php?page=User...

Beautiful Moth. Rich color!

whoever named it must have viewed it the other way around (wings pointing up) as viewed this way it looks more like the face of a proboscis monkey to me, brilliant colour though :)
