Notodontidae, Phalerinae - Phalera torpida

The following moth sp was found at Aberdeen Country Park, feeding on Bauhinia championii.  Other images will be provided in due course.  24 small (~ 1 mm dia) white ova with a black dot in the middle were found on the underside of a relatively new leaf (reddiish colored) which I first noticed because of bite marks on the edges and a small Geometridae larva attached to the leaf also.  (see next post).  In due course the ova all hatched out and initially I thought they might be lobster moth larvae--except for the bristles all over their (~4 mm) body.  I wonder if the geometrid larva might not be an insectivore like the one in Hawaii, because over time, I could not find any of the small larvae which I had left together with the geometrid caterpillar.  About a month later, I found 3 nearly mature larvae across the trail from where I had first found the ova.  The most mature was about 6 cm; the next was about 5 cm and the third was (guessing at 3rd instar) about 4 cm.  Subsequently, the two oldest pupated about a day apart.  They also eclosed about two days apart this past week--both females.  Head to wingtip is about 3-4 cm.  ID would be greatly appreciated.

This is Phalera torpida - compare the reniform and orbicular stigmata with P. grotei at http://www.hkwildlife.net/viewthread.php?tid=12317

cheers,

Roger.
