Dear Stefan,
This is a Giant Silkmoth in the family Saturniidae, but we cannot seem to locate a matching image online.  We will contact Bill Oehlke to see if he can provide an identification.

Update:  March 29, 2017
Thanks to a comment from Hiromi indicating that this is
Rhodinia jankowskii, we have found matching images on Photozou and Insecta.pro for verification.
