    The Rhimphaliodes is R. magrostigma (Crambidae), at least that is what I have labelled my photos of that species.

    Post 1 No. 1.

    Pomasia species. Geometridae. Larentinae. Eupitheciini.
    Note the FW apices are very rounded. The FW basal area & the HW have a paler look.
    It looks similar to this, but there are several similar species.

    An example of Pomasia salutaris to show the similar patterns.

    I think last one is Talanga sexpunctalis or at least I have earlier ID'ed very similar one as that: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jan_f_r...57633341300261

    Yes. I knew I had seen it before, but could not find the file! Eoopyhla species are quite similar, and I have deleted my earlier comment.

    It is Talanga sexpunctalis alright. Crambidae. Spilomelinae.
    From HK.

    Likewise. No. 3 is also correctly Rhimphaliodes macrostigma. Crambidae. Spilomelinae.
    From Australia.
    http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.co...crostigma.html

    Both species are wide-ranging from Asiatic mainland to Australia.

    Derambila species, tentative ID Derambila lumenaria. Geometridae. Desmobathrinae, Desmobathrini. India to Sundaland.
    It is probably this one shot in Indonesia .Note similar postmedials (iecpostdiscal spots in butterflies.)

    Two other with the about the same range, D. saponaria & fragilis have paler markings.

    Jerome, can you number your individual photos (post #, photo #). It does help enormously.

    Post #1, photo #2, I agree with the Genus, but there are a number of similar species, so I would not want to go further. I have a number similar photos, that may be the same species, but also be different ones, I do not know how variable they can be! I gave up on Geometridae a long, long time ago.

    No. 1 is most likely to be Pomasia reticulata .Geometridae. Larentinae. Eupitheciini. Mergui to Malaya & Borneo.

    The Pomasia are little collected. Most species consist of a few specimens.
    By eliminating the strictly montane , Bornean endemic & obvioiusly different forms the remainder are P. reticulata, luteata ,& gelastis .

    P. reticulata is the most widely collected & is thought to be a largely coastal species.

    Post 1 No. 4.

    Most likely Perixera spp. Geomeridae. Sterrhinae, Cosymbiini.

    It does not match correctly any of the description or image of Perixera in MoB, perhaps an extra-Borneo spp. like P. obrinaria.
    It looks like the one below except for the heavy fasciation (banding/striping).
    http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-10...biini_6_28.php

    No match with other related genera, eg. Cyclophora, Mesotrophe, & Scopula.
