    It is probably Euproctis moth ,Lymantriinae.
    eg E. similis from Europe.

    Moths are just way too tough.
    There are probably more than 8000 species in P. Malaysia.

    1. Looks to be Crambidae & close to Parapoynx.

    2. Scopula moth Geometridae.

    3. Totricidae ,Olethreutinae.
    Probably Lobesia moth.
