Apatalodes for sure, but not really sure if it is really Apatalodes pandarioides. There are several others, identical looking ones around. I have no clue to separate them. Maybe Apatalodes cf. pandarioides would be a compromise at the moment until we know more about it.

I find one exactly like mine and it is called: Bombycidae, Apatelodinae, Apatalodes pandarioides...I just do not think it is a reliable source??
