    Default ID Correction.

    No. 8 should be a Gymnoscelis spp. after all.
    Some do have wavy bands on both wings.
    It is very close to this but not quite . G. taprobanica Range India to China.

    No 13. This "Euproctis is unusual in that the twin white bands converge towards the FW costa whereas they typically diverge towards the forward margin (costa) in most species.

    Two more can be eliminated .

    E. varians. if this image from Phuket is correct.

    E. wilemani remains the strongest candidate as the two fasciae(bands) do narrow towards the costal margin.
    It is not recorded from Malaya but from Sumatra, Borneo & the Philippines.

    No. 4. The appearance is typically Lymantriinae.

    Note there are series of of indistinct arrowhead marks over the outer half of the FW.
    We can safely eliminate Tribes Orgyiini & Nygmiini as these two do not have the 'arrowheads'.

    In fact the marks are typical of Lymantria.
    Assuming it is found in Moths of Borneo the likely candidate is L. kinta.
    Lymantriine moths are extremely variable so it almost impossible to find a perfect match.

    The pattern is closest to the male L. kinta & I would put it provisionally as this species.

    No. 15.
    This matches the male Toxoproctis bifurcata well.
    There are several similar genera eg, Arna (2 subapical spots), Somena (without spot), Nygymia (with discal spot).

    No.2 . I thought the MoB image was faulty earlier, but this is correctly Eugoa inconspicua . Arctiinae.

    No 16. This matches Sphenarches anisodactylus very well. Distribution World-wide.

    No. 14 should be a Tortricidae, subfamily Tortricinae.
    It has the cross-pattern seen in some of the Capua species.

    There is nothing much to go on here.

    No. 10 is a Tineidae, Clothes moth.
    There are several similar genera.
    It looks closer to Nemapogon, but the number of species is daunting.

    Other similar genera eg.

    No. 1. should be Ancylolomia westwoodi . Crambidae.

    This is almost identical to Ancylolomia japonica a more northerly species.
    http://www.pbase.com/andrew57/image/96209061

    The only species recorded from Iran thru Malaya to Australia is A. westwoodi.
    The Australian form of this species.
