    I am afraid this gets very difficult.

    2. Likely Euproctis moth Lymantriidae .Many species very similar & white.

    3 & 6.
    Mocis frugalis Range Indo-australian pest species. Erebinae, Erebidae.

    The oblique white band may be absent in some forms.

    5. Male, looks to be Thyrididae. Correction :Anuga cf. multplicans. Eutelidae.
    A similar pix taken in the Andaman Islands but no ID given.
    It is possible the female may have more rounded ' normal' wings.

    Default ID Correction.

    9. Probably Mythimna exsanguis.

    IT seem most examples of M. loreyi have a distinct white dot on the FW.

    http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-12...ninae_4_16.php

    It is less seen in M. sanguis.

    8. unknown.

    11. Possibly a species of Chusaris. Herminiinae. Noctuidae.
