    be that as it may, this is still a moth!

    Belongs to the genus Artaxa, which (in older taxaonomy) would have been "Euproctis" sensu lato prior to J.D.Holloway's treatment of the Bornean Lymantriidae.

    cheers,

    Roger.

    Chee Ming, u cn differentiate bcoz the moth has "fur" on its legs. I also thought it was a moth as certain moths rest in this way.
