    Probably Daphnis hypothous, maybe D. nerii. The colors are a bit hard to tell.

    Thanks! Colors more closely match Nerii but wing leading edges and tips are somewhat different.
    That camo paint job sure works well in tropical foliage. If it hadn't landed on that bamboo leaf we might not have even noticed it.

  5. Do you live in thailand? If yes its logical to mistake that moth or not have an ID. But for europeans it like asking to id a bearded dragon. Veru common and bred by most european moth breeders
