It's probably a Luna. They vary widely in coloration, and frequently have very subdued (or none at all) eyespots. What's the wingspan?

With no tails? I thought Luna moths always had tails

I believe the luna moth Actias luna is only found in North America. It appears that other Actias are found in Asia but from what I can find on Wikpedia they do all seem to have tails.
