    Found caterpillar feeding on Bamboo and the adult eclosed today.
    The caterpillar looks like P.mathias but very much bigger. Could this be a P.assamensis?

    It is definitely P. assamensis.
    FW spots large & distinctly white; antenna with a broad white band.

    TL Seow: Cheers.

    Thank you.
    This is the 5th species I found feeding on the same small patch of bamboo.
