    Moth 1 should be Padenia duplicana.

    Although the outer band resembles that of P. obliquifascia in being more sigmoid or sinuous, there are 2 points to note.
    1. The lower part of the band runs along the margin as in duplicana.
    2. The 2 bands are more or less parallel. In obliquifascia they converged at the costa (forward margin).

    No. 2 should be male Bembina isabellina Lymantrinae, Erebidae.
    The band & dark peripheral areas are correctly placed; antennae pectinate.
    The FW apex have a distinctive white patch.
    The distinctive white discal spot is hard to see in the low-res image, but is mentioned in the text.

    No. 3 should be a Crambidae species.
    It typically rest with the abdomen upturn.
    A tough one to ID.

    No. 5. probably Brunia antica.

    It looks like nigh impossible to separate the females of the two species.
    Brunia antica is much the commoner of the two.

    Valid examples of B. sarawaca.

    Valid examples of Brunia antica. B. sarawaca is unknown in HK.

    No. 6 should be Hemonia orbiferana.
    1. The FW apex is more rounded.
    2. The basal areas of the FWs are much darker shaded.
    3. The black margin of the FW apex ends about 1/3 on the costa (forward margin) & does not extend down to the base as in rotundata.
