    I am afraid the rest are way too tough without proper resources.

    3. A Crambid (also could be Pyralid).

    11. A Pyralid. I seemed to recall seeing something like this in a Japanese website.

    13. Like a brown Euproctis but no match seen.

    16. This appeared to be an unusual Tortrid.

    17. Very likely a Tortrid.

    No. 11 Progonia oileusalis Noctuiidae. Herminiinae. ( Correction :Herminiinae is now placed in the family Erebidae )

    Here is a piece of luck.
    In looking at a website I saw a pix which looks familiar.
    A search for the name yield a positive result.
    Your pix 3 is the clearest & all the markings & their position match correctly.

    Variations.

    I actually have part 17 of MoB (not available on website)containing Herminiinae but the image is so small & poor that it looks different.

    No. 3 Crambidae.

    http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/154106014
    At best, this is very likely a Metasia species.

    This is very similar to the one below, in wingshape & the fasciation.
    Note also the FW have a similar pale mark at the lower corner (tornus).

    Default Review No. 3

    I must say that the similarity of No. 3 with Metasia ateloxantha is very great.

    Here is Bold System of M. ateloxantha specimens from Australia.
    http://www.boldsystems.org/index.php...e?taxid=328731

    Compare your pix with the 2nd image top row.
    The bands on the abdomen are almost identical.
    Note the live individual have ite abdomen bent upwards ,so it appears shorter.

    The 1st narrow white band is at the level of the 2nd wing fascia.
    This is foollowed by a broad dark band.
    The 2nd pale broad band (whitish in your pix) has a narrow dark band in it ; the whole is at he level of the 3rd wing fascia.
    Lastly is a broad black band with a narrow white one at the lower margin.

    I would venture to say from the wing pattern & abdominal marking the match is very good.

    However, there is no distribution record except for Australia.
    It could be this species or a very similar allied species in Asia.

    Yes, they look similar... I will go with Metasia cf. ateloxantha.

    No. 17. Acria cf. ceramitis. Peleopodidae.

    Not quite sure if it is this species although it is very likely to be.

    Another A. cocophaga is a pest on coconut & oil palm.
    http://www.pestnet.org/SummariesofMe...,AP,India.aspx

    There is little info on this obscure family.

    TL Seow
    PS. This moth is also placed under various families.
    1. Elaschistidae, Depressariinae.
    2. Oecophoridae, Xylorectinae.

    No. 17 look similar with Acria ceramitis... So, i'll go with Acria cf. ceramitis...

    So, this moth under the family Erebidae or Noctuiidae?
