Hello Bugman,
I am here to Bug you again.
This large brown moth with almost pea-size orange `eyes’ on the upper part of the wings flew in. Actually, I have seen them before but only a few days ago thought I need to know what it is. I hope you can be of help!

Dear Sucheta,
We believe we have correctly identified this Indian Owl Moth,
Erebus macrops, thanks to images on India Nature Watch and Biodiversity India.

Thanks very much for the quick ID!
Best regards,
Goa, India
