    No. 11, Cyclophora intermixtaria .This one was pretty hard to solve.

    The 1st step was getting the genus correct.
    The fascia match this one very well but C.dimerites lacks the heavy black flecks & is only known from Borneo & eastwards.

    Two species with black flecks in the region are C. carsoni & intermixtaria.
    C. carsoni has a form with very heavy black flecks. In any case it is restricted to Borneo.

    This one matches the description of C. intermixtaria & the range is just right.

    No. 12 . Naarda ?ineffectalis. Erebidae (formerly Noctuidae) ,Herminiinae (formerly Hypeninae).

    All Naarda species are rather similar, even those from Africa.

    All species mentioned in MoB are endemic except N. ineffectalis , range Sri Lanka, Borneo, & also New Guinea.
    The discal mark is not so well-formed in this species. (Most others with a figure of eight mark.)

    A number of other species occur in continental Asia.

    No 8 is a great puzzle.

    There is just no other match seen possible except this.

    Yet the position & shape of the FW spots do not match correctly.
    However, part of the spots ie on FW costa, are hidden.
    This plus variation may have distorted the perspective.
    Do you have another shot ie. side view that shows the whole FW?

    No. 8 is not Aemene.
    There seem to be no match in other families with black & white species eg Geometridae, Ethmiidae, Yponomeutidae, etc.
    eg Ethmiidae.
    http://www1.ala.org.au/gallery2/d/16...ytodoxa_01.jpg

    eg. Yponomeutidae.(Probably in this family)

    No. 16. Very distinctive, Dark FW;HW banded ;margins with parallel lines.
    Again no match or anything close seen.
