Oxydia sp. (Geometridae, Ennominae). Dmitry's "not sure" was not vain ;)

Don't know, who, but also think it's Lonomia sp. (can't name the species): http://www.saturniidae-web.de/Lonomia.htm.

"Not sure Saturnia" is vain. I have nature shots of Lonomia, nearly one to one except one thing, some corner, or, line fracture in the apical part of a forewing. You can compare it there: http://www.dimijianimages.com/Crypsis-mimicry-page1/Lonomia.htm.

If this is Saturnia (not sure though), then rather Periga genus. Lonomia is what famous of its poisonous caterpillars???
