It is probably Euproctis moth ,Lymantriinae.
eg E. similis from Europe.

Moths are just way too tough.
There are probably more than 8000 species in P. Malaysia.

1. Looks to be Crambidae & close to Parapoynx.

2. Scopula moth Geometridae.

3. Totricidae ,Olethreutinae.
Probably Lobesia moth.

TL Seow: Cheers.
