Orange Magpie Moth

Orange Magpie Moth (Epobeidia tigrata, 大斑豹纹尺蛾).

Near the base of Yuelu Mountain, in a spot that is particularly dense with undergrowth I have seen two of these moths flying around. I have observed them three days in a row but each time they quickly retreated higher into the trees.
