Description

Insecta: Lepidoptera
Noctuoidea; Notodontidae
Kamalia priapus (Galsworthy, 1997) (original combination was Cerura priapus, then transferred to Paracerura in 2002

Hong Kong's own "puss moth"; also known from Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Burma and Taiwan, Hainan, Guangxi

Note that the genusParacerura was described by Schintlmeister in 2002, whence this species was transferred from the genus Cerura. However, Paracerura Schintlmeister 2002 is a junior homonym of Paracerura Dehavening & Oliviera, 1996, so the notodontid genus was given a replacement name, Kamalia by Koçak & Kemal in 2006
