    So, this moth under the family Erebidae or Noctuiidae?

    No. 18 male Somena similis.

    (I actually happened to find a male in my bathroom a few weeks ago.)

    Under the latest revision backed by DNA studies Erebidae now includes
    Lymantriinae.
    Arctiinae.
    Erebinae (formerly Catocalinae)
    many smaller subfamilies including Herminiinae.

    currently, E. cyclota is only known from China (see Fauna Sinica Insecta volumes..., Fang, 2000). I would be inclined to refer to the Malay Eugoa as sp. cf. cyclota until such time as voucher material has been dissected. It is not beyond the realms of impossibility that the one in your photo is cyclota, or a new species.

    cheers,
