    And several others from miscellaneous groups
    Lymantriidae

    84) Arctornis singaporensis (Male) ?


    Bombycoidea

    85) Kunugia sp ?


    86-87) Matanastria sp ?
    Same individual, different perspectives




    88) Unknown
    Its natural resting position resembles those of Varicosia and Cephena; wings kept to body.

    84. Arctornis singaporensis is distinctive with its broad green shadings of several main veins.

    85.Female Kunugia gynandra.
    The FW is marked by several wavy arcuate fasciae.
    The submarginal spots have two at the apex & two at the tornus enlarged & darkened.

    86. Metanastria cf. hyrtaca female. Range ;NE India to Sundaland except Borneo.
    The FW postmedial pale fascia makes a strong bent at its upper 1/3 the inner margin more so.
    The submarginal spots are very irregularly set with strong white inner shadings.

    M gamella have the FW postmedial pale band straighter & the submarginal much less irregular.
    M. aconyta in the Indian subregion is similar in this respect.

    89 & 90) Arctornis spp
    I suspect these two may be the same species. They were found in the same building.

    88. No match .The prominent reniform spot indicates a true Noctuid.
    Unfortunately part of Noctuidae in MoB is unavailable.

    89-90 Arctornis. same species .Discal spot & rippled scales in lower half of FWs.
    No match seen.

    TL Seow: Cheers.
    PS . From the 2nd pix the wings are rather translucent, & no defined dense patches of scales.
    Possibly Arctornis semihyalina.

    Review 89-90.
    Arctornis very likely A. submarginata.
    A. semihyalina have brown unspotted foreleg whereas pix 90 shows a spotted foreleg.

    The FW markings is identical to this below in which part of the frons & palps can be seen .Pix 89 shows a bit of dark brown at the front end.
    https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/5062069
    The blackish brown frons & brown palps are distinctive.
    http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-5/...thini_1_46.php

    If you do get to shoot another Arctornis ,try to get a frontal shot.
    Many ID marks are based on the markings of the frons(forehead), palps, & forelegs.
    The usual shot have the head bend down in making these invisible.

    Review No. 31.
    Undoubtedly it is Noreia.
    The markings matched correctly, the more rounded wings indicate a female.

    Noreia cf ajaia.
    This is recorded from Singapore, the male is more brownish grey than the unilineata male & the female browner still.
    The Un HW have the postmedial angled in ajaia but rounded in unilineata.

    N. unilineata.

    I still possess the insect in image 90, here's a frontal shot.

    You were right, A. submarginata. It appears to posses a tibia spot on both forelegs. (spot on the right leg just peeping from the wings)

    >>Match found for 88: Porsica circumducta

    P.S. Images 73-83 are still pending evaluation

    Starting off with Notodontidae

    91) Cerasana anceps ?


    Lymantriidae

    92) Lymantria ganara ?


    And a Nygmiid
    Form slightly reminiscent of Euproctis
    93) Unknown


    Limacodids
    >94 & 95 are certainly the same species as they were mating prior to the production of these images .

    94 & 95) Thosea ''mediostrigata" ?




    And an Arctiid?
    Resembles Cyanea but is much smaller, with unmarked legs
    96) Unknown


    And two Crambids

    97) Musotima sp ?
    These insects appear to exhibit some gregarious behaviour, often perching in groups on trunks and under leaves.


    98) Palpita sp ?

    Good work on the Porsica.
    I have actually look thru all the families in MoB & still missed it.


    72. Traminda aventiara is undoubted.

    73. Derambila lumenaria seem to match with its prominent marginal spots but no good image to compare. Probable.

    74. Borbacha cf. punctipardaria.
    The large black discal spots & the FW grey fascia seem to match .
    The other species have small discal spots.
    http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-11...ptini_14_3.php
    Examples of B. pardaria.
    http://twmoth.tesri.gov.tw/peo/FBMot...cha%20pardaria

    75. Fascellina cf. chromataria

    It can not be F. quadrata as MoB stated it lacks the white discal spot/patch.
    http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-11...sini_12_12.php
    The Bold sysytem images may be in error (It is not always correct)
    http://www.co1bank.uoguelph.ca/index...e?taxid=296968

    Another example is here.
    https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/6690447

    Of the species with a white discal spot are F. albicordis, castanea & chromataria.

    C. albocordis dark.
    http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-11...sini_12_10.php
    http://insecta.pro/images/1024/30356.jpg

    F. castanea. spot smaller variable.
    http://www.jpmoth.org/~dmoth/Digital...20castanea.htm

    F. chromataria.

    76. Pantura rufifrons is right.
    https://www.papua-insects.nl/insect%...%20BMNH%5D.jpg

    77 Ommatophora luminosa is right.
    https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...9537663%29.jpg

    78. Hadennia mysalis is right.
    http://www.jpmoth.org/~dmoth/Digital...s_70415005.jpg

    79 Mecodina lanceola uncertain probably right .
    http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-15...neousv_8_1.php
