Imperial Moth

Eacles imperialis

Description:

I'm not very sure about the exact species, although I have suggested one. Documented occurrences for this one do not match where I found this specimen.

Habitat:

Brazil's interior, MG state.

Notes:

I put a piece of wet yellow cloth in the window to dry over night and when I went back there to catch it in the morning, there was an interesting visit! Very interesting her behavior to realize the perfect place for a camouflage overnight. She should be very comfortable there!

It is the sub-species (Eacles imperialis magnifica), which is found in Brazil.
