Hi Roy! I am thinking this might be Bunaeopsis princeps, what do you think? The first semicircle closest to the thorax is usually pink in the specimens of Bunaeopsis oubie at BOLD, but in Bunaeopsis princeps, it is the same color as the veins.

I would love to hear your opinion.

That's not an Emperor Gum moth, or at least I don't know why an Australian species would be found in Kenya.
