Yes, this too is a subspecies: Rothschildia aurota speculifera (Walker, 1855) Brazil , Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina. But I put in R. hesperus (in aurota himself strongly doubt).

I would say that this is R. hesperus. It is the same red, and is found in Brazil. One of these days I will give my photos from the collection - one face.

Rothschildia aurota ? Nothing else of them did I like. What will the folks say?
