Hello, My wife and I came across this amazing moth trapped inside a restroom in Swaziland, Africa on February 20th, 2015. Can you identify the moth for me?
Thank you so much.
We believe thanks to images posted to iSpot, that we have correctly identified your gorgeous male Emperor Moth as Imbrasia belina. On African Moths, the species is identified as Gonimbrasia belina. The edible caterpillar is known as the Mopane Worm.
