An exotic moth at NBGW

I came across this tweet of an exotic moth caterpillar at the National Botanic Garden of Wales - an Atlas moth caterpillar found on Hibiscus schizopetalus by James Callicott.
See link (copy and paste it into Google) below for photos - go to the posting for March 4th:

As a belated post, I trapped on the night of 13/3, and had nine species, the best of which was a satellite. I also had my first butterflies that day - small tortoiseshells and a peacock.
