This one is close enough to see that it isn't a butterfly. How do we know?

"We" don't, but I think you do.
Is it because of the wings are backward pointing at rest? Or because the "sticking out" things at the front have all the little bits protruding off the sides?

Yes, the antennae on moths are feathery, while those on butterflies are long and thin with a slight club on the end.

Go the the top of the class (but only because the bottom's already full!)

Guy,

You might know the full-colour booket "Butterfles of Hong Kong", written and photographed by a Lamma author, Paul Lau?

Paul has a private little butterfly farm over in Sok Kwu Wan. Just got his great, bilingual book and his phone number today from Herboland in Hung Shing Yeh, while enjoying one of their dozens of herb tea and cookies...

The book is truly wonderful, especially the quick reference pictorial indices inside the front & back covers.
The amount of work gone into compiling the book is incredible & shows the true dedication of the author to his subject.
Paul Lau, if you read these forums......... Congratulations on a really good piece of work.

Have a caterpillar for today.......... (Blue Spotted Crow Larvae [P.149])
