Yes, specifically moved into precise, without label and without images of many species of this genus, there is no 100% certainty.

Probably, all right, except for the "close call." Bo can be closed even after the transfer in precise and yet such confidence, look, no.

12.01.2016 14:17, Alexandr Zhakov Corrected data.

Loepa katinka / Evgeny Komarov Loepa oberthuri / Eugene Matveev.

In my opinion the assumption of Yevgeny Matveyev is right )
For comparison:
Loepa oberthuri (Leech 1890): http://www.saturniidae-web.de/Loepa%20oberthueri.htm
Loepa katinka (Westwood 1848): http://www.saturniidae-web.de/Loepa%20katinka.htm
By habitus the butterfly on this photo is Loepa oberthuri rather than oberthuri ))
If you are agree, it is necessary to edit data and close the conversation.

If I understand the author's photo is now the size of already impossible to get ...

I wrote IMHO, because I do not know the formal distinctive features.
For me, the presence of orange spots and black pattern is sufficient.
Besides oberthüri much larger than katinka. We can't estimate the sizi by the photo. It would be nice to specify the size of the butterfly in author's comment.

Let's wait some more opinions...

Two users already for oberthuri - we may move it!

10.01.2016 15:49, Alex Dumchus

Still, it's more like Loepa oberthuri

Peter, you can see for yourself, my definition uncertain, Eugene IMHO. These types of such photos, so even without georeferencing can not determine with confidence. Therefore, even though so at least you can put some sort. There will be people who will say with confidence, then yes.I myself defined by the photos, reviewing all that I found in the internet, and he went through my copy of the buyer and there is no end. Decide yourself.

10.01.2016 15:28, Peter Khramov

Duc, and then smart. The issue, move or not.

10.01.2016 11:28, Evgeny Komarov

Nothing clever - I wrote that it is not sure of the definition.

09.01.2016 21:26, Peter Khramov

Evgeny Komarov, what say you about it?

08.01.2016 0:17, Eugene Matveev

IMHO - Loepa oberthuri
