    Default Moths from a Malaysian trip

    I have enjoyed a one week trip in few Central and North Malaysian locations with my friend and member Lc Goh. We found many moths mostly in this wonderful location on Gunung Jerai (Kedah), but from Fraser's Hill and Gopeng too:


    Longicella mollis (Agarastinae) - Ipoh



    Amblychia hymenaria - Gopeng



    Cyclidia orciferaria, Drepanidae - Gopeng



    Ambulyx moorei - Jerai



    Theretra latreillii (or boisduvalii?) - Jerai

    2, Amblychia hymenaria is right.
    5. Theretra latreillii is right. T. boisduvalii lacks the abdominal lines.

    The resting positions are typical of Lasiocampidae.

    5. A Gastropacha species. Several very similar species.
    6. Looks like Takanea diehlei.

    5. The markings matched Gastropacha leopoldi well.
    This is now recorded from Malaya.
