Please include this Attacus lorquinii moth and the rest of your moth spottings to the mission "Moths in the Philippines" at http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1591.... Thanks!

Atlas moth (Attacus atlas) has a different wing pattern, RolandFadz. Though your spotting is a relative, the Attacus atlas has a small white pin marking on top of the triangular white on the forewings as in this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attacus_atl... as compared to your spotting which is similar to this http://www.jpmoth.org/~dmoth/Digital_Mot...
