Arsenura armida and Epitragus sp. are defoliators that cause problems occasionally.
McCarthy's reason for referring to the illustration of arsenura armida from Merian's book is apparently to reconnect with his exiguous silk theme, the moth being known in some quarters as the giant silk moth, though its larvae don't make cocoons.
