Hi Juan. It does look similar to the link you provided. First time I've seen a Euproctis with many dots at the head. That's a very lovely 2nd picture.

Hi, @Agnes; Actually I'm not sure that could be Euproctis, but I don't believe could belongs to Asota genus. I have uploaded a pic I made last year in the same place. In this side view the similarity with Asota dissapears. What do you think? ;) Take a look to this link:

Could this be a Snouted Tiger Moth - an Asota sp. maybe Asota caricae? Although the coloration makes me uncertain.
