    2, & 3. Probably variant of Chalcosia zehma.female.
    The female have more transverse white band on FW & HW (which may be broaden as a white patch); FW veins enhanced.
    Female here have a HW patch note identical curved & notched outer margin) band width variable.

    Neochalcosia looks similar but FW white band crooked , do not reach lower margin & veins not enhanced.

    7. ?Totricidae.

    8. Gangarides vardena Notodontidae.

    9. Parapoynx diminutalis Crambidae. .
    This matches the pale form of diminutalis .

    Very similar to P. stagnalis. but stagnalis lacks the thoracic spots.
