Need to do a bit of research on this one; unfortunately am rather ill at the moment...

Well, I (temporarily at least) have exhausted my references to no avail. It has to belong either to the family Saturniidae or the subfamily Arctiinae in the family Erbidae. Unfortunately, the characters used to distinguish those groups cannot be seen without the use of magnification.

Sorry to hear you are ill. Hope you get better soon. What about Virgin Tiger moth?

That moth occurs only in North America. However, your specimen could belong to the same tribe (Arctiini).

Thank you, that's what I was thinking.
