Unknown Chinese Saturnid Moth identified as Caligula Moth

what kind of bug
I found this moth on our boat on the Yanstze River in China. What kind of moth is it?

Hi Dave,
In a general sense, this is a Saturnid Moth, but sadly, we cannot tell you the species. We tried web searching, but need more time to get you an exact identification. It really is a gorgeous moth.

Hi Guys,
Hope this note finds you both well. The Chinese Saturnid on the Yangtze riverboat is Caligula simla. I found it on Kirby Wolfe’s absolutely impressive site.
