Saturnia (Eudia) pavoniella or pavonia, I would say that this female belongs to the first one

According to Tony Pittaway ( and

Distribution (S. pavoniella)
From the alpine regions of Austria, Italy (including Sicily) and the Czech Republic across southeastern Europe to ?northern Turkey and the ?Caucasus Mountains; however, the status of this species in Asia Minor is uncertain. Possibly also southeastern France, but this also requires further investigation.

In southern Germany (Bavaria) and northern Austria this species overlaps with S. p. pavonia to a small degree, producing a limited hybrid zone.

Distribution (S. pavonia)
The most widely distributed palaearctic saturnid, ranging in the west from Ireland across the Ural Mountains (Nupponen & Fibiger, 2002) to Siberia, and from northern Scandinavia and arctic Russia south to northern Spain, the northern Alps, Slovakia, Kazakhstan and the Caucasus. [...]

So, it seems that S. pavonia is the only species present in Slovakia; but I think that the real distribution of this couple of species would have to be investigated a bit more...

Grazie Paolo :lov2:
