No, this was fresh material, mostly from Vietnam. Here's the abstract:
Abstract: 11 species of the family Saturniidae (Lepidoptera) are described as new to science. The following taxa are described: Saturnia (Rinaca) simloides n. sp., S. (R.) thibetomima n. sp., S. (R.) ngoclinhensis n. sp., Lemaireia mediovietnama n. sp. [female HT], Cricula sokola n. sp., Cr. acuta n. sp. [female HT], Actias laovieta n. sp., Antheraea (Antheraea) scida n. sp., Anth. (Anth.) luteofrithi n. sp., Rhodinia extremaustralis n. sp.,and Coscinocera misoolensis n. sp. They belong to the genera Saturnia von Paula Schrank, 1802 (subgenus Rinaca Walker, 1855), Lemaireia Nässig & Holloway, 1987, Cricula Walker, 1855, Actias Leach, 1815, Antheraea Hübner, 1819 (“1816”), Rhodinia Staudinger, 1892 and Coscinocera Butler, 1879. All holotypes (males if not indicated differently) will be deposited within the Rainer Seegers Foundation in the collections of ZMHU, Museum für Naturkunde der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Germany. Most of the new species originate from south and central Vietnam, one species has an additional distribution in the southern provinces of Laos, and one taxon, the new species of Coscinocera, is described from the Indonesian Island of Misool, located in the Raja Ampat Archipelago off the southwestern coast of West Papua. Holotypes and most allotypes are figured in colour. More detailed work on the involved taxa is planned for future generic revisions, by now we just intend to make the names available for other purpose.
