Was seen in Goa India in January this year
Central Goa, India
This is surely a gorgeous Wasp Moth, one of the Arctiid Moths in, we suspect, the Tribe Euchromiini. We quickly found a matching photograph on the India Nature Watch website, and they are identified as Day Flying Moths, Euchromia elegantissima, with a link to the Moths of Borneo website. The Cambodian Bugs website also has some photos of this elegant beauty.
Thanks ever so much for your help,

We just received a comment indicating that this is actually a different species in the same genus: Euchromia polymena. We located a photo on the TrekNature that supports that comment.
