    No. 4.

    Every spots & markings will match this species, Lyclene undulosa.
    The problem is I do not know if it is recorded in peninsular Malaysia.

    No. 6. Spilosoma hypogopa. Some authors assign it to Spilarctia, as Spilarctia hypogopa.
    Family Erebidae, Arctiinae. Arctidae is now a subfamily of Erebidae.

    Very variable markings, (eg. FW bands may be minimal) but recognised by pale creamy antennae & prominent dark spots along the lower margin of forewing.
    Note black legs.
    Perfect matches from Singapore.
