Thanks to all those who responded to my query on the moth ID.  It does
appear that the species is _Urania fulgens_ as suggested by Dr. Adams.  My
friend is having twenty rolls of film developed she took on the trip, and
hopefully some good ones of the moths.  I did find pictures of both _U.
leilus_ and _U. fulgens_ and posted them on a page for my friend to look
at.  If anyone is interested you can view them at
They are very similar.

Thanks again,
