Good day, I saw this one in my garden on 7th november this year. Later it was on the ground, and an hour later gone. I live in North West Province in South Africa.
Your moth bears a striking resemblance to North and Central American Flannel Moths in the family Megalopygidae, and we believe your moth is also a member of that family, however, we are currently unable to verify that identification on iSpot as the site is currently unavailable. Perhaps when iSpot solves its technical problems, we can provide you with a species name.
Baie dankie, saw the answer on ispot: Rayed Slug Moth

Thanks for providing that information so that we can correct the posting of this Rayed Slug Moth from the family Limacodidae. We are linking to the iSpot page that now includes your sighting.
