      Hello folks,

      Here is another pretty Saturniid from Nagaland, possibly the first record from the state, in fact the only record of it from India is from Sikkim. Known distribution includes China, Hongkong, Myanmar, Nepal, India (Sikkim). Hence this extends its known range. Ian, Roger and Peter's checklist of Saturniids for common names did not include this species, though Hampson does list it from Sikkim.
