I have seen this moth in an 18th century painting and I am trying to identify it - it has been suggested that it is part of the Utetheisa genus - what do you think please?!
I think it might be Arctia imaginatium :-)
Greenflag - Utethesia seems very likely; the hind wing (underside) markings are very similar to U. pulchella.
It is not U. elata, but I can't pin down which species it is / might be.
