If you ever encounter Mothra, do not be afraid. She is mostly harmless and the size of a packet of tissue.

No her real name is not Mothra – I do not know the species’s name.

You are welcome to send me the name via the comment section! I found this at a buststop in Panjim, Goa, India.

    My research has been fruitful! This looks like a Tasar Silk Moth – ‘Antheraea mylitta’. First I thought it could be ‘Antheraea polyphemus’ but since that is found only in North America, this is most probably the ‘Mylitta’.
