    Default Big moth cat

    Saw this at Venus Drive at night. Huge cat 10+cm in length. Lasiocampidae?

    I think it's more likely Saturniidae judging by the size and hairs, but i'm not certain.

    Hi Roger, thanks for the lead. Narrow-downed my search and found a probable match in this paper, http://rmbr.nus.edu.sg/nis/bulletin2...nis215-218.pdf
