I think you can find such moths in your country, maybe not this specific species but closely related ones. The genius Automeris is specific from North and central America. But never touch their caterpillars, they are highly stinging!
Oh! I may know of what are you talking about... the catterpillar are likes spiked and burn the skin at touch, or not? You know alot, it's great to find someone who likes insects and knows so much about them
Yes, exactly. The caterpillars have stinging hairs and they can be very painful. [link] Thank you! It is always a pleasure to share. And I love insects (particularly butterflies and moths) since I was a child... You are very lucky: there are many beautiful butterflies and moths in your country, amongst the most wonderful species in the world!
That's very nice! Since lots of people don't like insects, it's very interesting to find someone who likes them and knows so much about them Yes, this country has tons of marvelous insects, it's a ppleasure to admire nature's beautiful desings ^_^
Ah yes, I apologize for forgetting that you would be importing it, I just took for granted that its a local here. But yes, its a shame you don't remeber as I am quite interesting to know where it came from.
