Billo, it IS actually Arsenura arianae, female, confirmed directly by Dr. Ronald Brechlin from Germany. He himself described it (Brechlin & Meister 2010)!! So we got a confirmation by a Master expert!

Saturniidae, Arsenurinae, Arsenura sp. and looks like being Arsenura armida or Arsenura arianae. I try to get closer...

Very beautiful Billo! Looks like a Silk Moth (Saturniidae). I've never seen this one before. Glad you are back, I was missing you!
