Large moth with two distinct "eyes." The "eyes"look rather like mirror images of inverted commas. Wave-like pattern towards the bottom (middle part) of the wings and a triangular design in the middle of the body, as if a patch has been glued on.
Cottage wall at Neora Valley Jungle camp.About 3 hours drive from Siliguri (coordinates shown) to the remote forested and hilly village of Kolakham. Drawn to the porch light. It barely sat for a moment and all I got were two shots where part of the wings were in shadow. Then the moth flew away and I retired a little sad. The next day (dawn) I saw it sitting on the wall of my cottage as if waiting for me to take a photo!
Lat: 27.10, Long: 88.69
