So this is the second time I spot this moth first time my grandfather spot it when I saw it I think it was female because she is very big so now my grandmother spot it at the same spot as my grand father, that spot is outdoor kitchen, This time I think it was male because it was small. What it host plant I know that it host plant was acacia because of wiki but is it really acacia in Bangkok? I think it might be Leucaena leucocephala because at the end of the road in the village it has little forest that has many plant (include banana lemongrass and many tall grass). And what they really call Great owl moth, Owl eye moth, Owl moth. THANKS
forgot he about 3-4 inches
