    Post 1 No. 4 & 5.

    As I have stated in the postscript of an earlier post these two really are moths ater all.

    These are Geometrid moths belonging to the Subfamily Larentiinae.
    They often rest with the forewings covering the hindwings.
    Examples below of the genera Episteira & Sauris.

    They are rather small. Unfortunately MoB's images are so small & low-res that it is daunting to figure out the IDs.

    Post 1 No. 4 & 5. No. 4 is rather worn - note loss of cilia.

    Sauris interruptata, Geometridae, Larentiinae. Range India to Papua.
    Here is one taken in Taiwan. Note all the markings & their positions matched. Intensity & colour tone will always varies.

    Post 10. No. 1.

    Tentative ID Episteira nigrifrons. Geometridae, Larentiinae. Range Indo-Australian Region.

    Here is a pic from nothern Thailand. Tentative ? Sauris spp. Every mark & wavy lins matched so that it is likely the same species.

    However, there is no proper match from MoB for this, E. nigrifrons is the closest.
    Note there are two 'blank' areas on the FW, at the apex & next to it subapical/costal.
    Also at the tornus is a whitish patch demarcated with black.

    Jerome, this thread is getting very complicated and confused. May I humbly suggest that you start a different thread for each month, it will be easier to follow.

    Post 105 (image of Post 70 no. 3)

    Herpetogramma spp. invariably have the outer FW line strongly sinuous or undulate, sometimes almost forming a loop.

    Paranacoleia lophophoralis is a much better match. Range east Asia, recorded from Singapore.

    Thank you, Psyche, Painted Jezebel, and guldsmed, for assisting me in the IDs. I shall start another thread then.

    More moth

    ID unknown

    Post 43 No. 2. Tentative ID. Perixera gaeta , Geometridae. Sterrhinae. Cosymbiini. Range Sundaland, Sulawesi.


    This was in an earlier post only tentatively thought to be Erythrolophus fascicorpus.
    Although the HW has a black discal ring spot, the abdomen is not black-banded as in Erythrolophus.

    However, among the Perixera is a good match.
    It matches the image of P. argyromma (image large enough to compare accurately) quite well , all the black dots on the FW as well as the medial dark band.
    The HW discal spot is white rimmed with black & may be almost black as stated in the text of argyromma.
    P. argyromma belongs to a suite of 3 almost identical species.
    P. argyromma is montane.
    P. argyrommoides is a Bornean endemic.
    This leaves P. gaeta .
