    Default Hairy Moth

    Found this quite large moth yesterday half way up my Boungainvilia trellis (hence the odd angles of shot). It has hairy wings and extremely long tornal cilia on the hindwings. Could someone ID this for me? (Tried Moths of Borneo without luck).

    Most definitely and, hopefully, still is! The first shot has it on a Frangipani plant, I gave it a little nudge in the hope that it would move to a more accessible location, but it only flew up a few metres onto the Bougainvillia.

    Finally got an ID for this. It is a Noble's Tuftwing, Pterothysanus noblei (Callidulidae).
