Take Heterusia sp. as ID. It is not Gratulata and not Dividiata.

Oh I missed all that discussion... Thanks to all 3 of you for the ID. bayucca, ornithoptera80 and saturniidae27. Seems like equal votes for 2 different species here, but I guess the iGoTerra link probably sways it. Looks like a match !...

Ok, guys, thanks for your assistance in finding an ID. I think we can go with Heterusia sp. as genus. But, please, add links for your suggestions, not only as a proof ;-), but also for discussions :-)!
