subspecies
This is Eacles imperialis pini, the nominate subspecies does not range that far north. Also, the colors of this individual (which are stunning) represent those of E. i. pini.

 
Eacles imperialis pini
Can you tell if this individual is male or female?

MALE!
Most members of the "Saturniidae" (incl. "Citheroniidae, a.k.a. Ceratocampidae")are dimorphic in overall shape and size. The proportions of this insect are very typical for males of the Eacles group! Although the antennae are not visible, familiarity with the group allows one to readily recognize the sex of most Saturniid species based on these characters.

I recommend a separate node for var. pini!
