Giant Silkmoth: Ludia species

This is a Giant Silkmoth in the genus Ludia, but we located four different, similar looking species ( Ludia dentata, Ludia hansali eximia, Ludia orinoptena, Ludia pupillata)  on the World’s Largest Saturniidae site, so we cannot say for certain to which species your individual belongs.  FlickR has an image of Ludia dentata for comparison and Silkmoths and More has an image of Ludia orinoptena.
