Amata phegea (Linnaeus, 1758)

In all of Europe we only have six species of the Amata Genus - if we step up to the Tribe where Amata belongs, we get 3 additional Dysauxes species . In Africa below Sahara there are over 100 known Amata species.

Have a look at these on this nice AfroMoths website. There is no direct link to the Amata Pictures, you have to do some work yourself.

Click on this link and then type in "Amata" in the "Filter by genus" Dropdown. Enjoy!
