Yes, that's it for sure.

Well, then Arctiidae ---Amaxia consistens Schaus, 1905.

Dmitry, I think you do right. I also tried to find in Citheronia, had no luck but success in Arctiidae.

I think, that should be Arctiidae ---Amaxia consistens Schaus, 1905.

Saturniidae, Ceratocampinae. Something very close to genus Citheronia (W.Rothschild, 1907), or maybe that's the very it.
