    1 - inat link - https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/143999359

    2 - Trichaetoides chloroleuca? or amata stellaris?

    Callopistria rivularis. Correction: Callopistria pulchrilinea.

    This image gives a better view.

    Two species are rather similar.
    CALLO.png
    1. Callopistria rivularis.
    FW submarginals sharply serrate.
    Postmedial comes close to the submarginals.
    Antemedial curved or rounded in the middle.
    Reniform spot uniformly whitish.

    http://lepidoptera.butterflyhouse.co...rivularis.html


    2. Callopistria pulchrilinea.
    FW submarginal more level & only lowest spot triangular.
    Antemedial curved in the middle as in rivuiaris.
    Reniform uniform whitish, may be enhanced white posteriorly.

    Others.
    Callopistria maillardi.
    Upper two submarginals less irregular, hardly dentate, the third with a sharp point.
    Postmedial well separated from the submarginals.
    Antemedial sharply angled in the upper third.
    Reniform uniformly white.

    Callopistria exotica
    Antemedia angled in the lower third.

    Callopistria repleta.

    Callopistria placodoides.
    Submarginals linear.
    Antemedial straight in the middle.
    http://dearlep.tw/species.html?namec...34853f614aafce


    Callopistria trilineata.
    Submarginals slightly irregular.
    Postmedial very close to the submarginals.
    Antemedial sharp angled in the middle.
    http://www.jpmoth.org/~dmoth/Digital...trilineata.htm


    https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/142812129
    2. The markings are that of Canaeressa with several spots on the HW.
    It is most likely this species.
    The thorax have two whote spts & the abdomen have a series on the side ,as mentioned in the text.

    Correction.

    Post 24 no. 1 is Callopistria puchrilinea not C. rivularis.
    https://inaturalist-open-data.s3.ama...8994/large.jpg
    The upper two apical submarginals have level margins, only the white shadings make them look sharp.
    The reniform is strongly whitened ,not seen in C. rivularis.



    C. rivularis.
    Note the apical submarginals are individual dentate.
    The rerniform is uniformly whitish with thin margins.

    Callopistria pulchrilinea.
    Upper two submarginals do not have dentate margins.
    Reniform is enhanced white.

    Dear Doctor Seow,

    The taxon didnt exist on inat so ill leave it as it is first. I hereby present a interesting observation of a Demonarosa
    inat link - https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/143999353
    https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/145269065

    I found this mysterious caterpillar in the first inat link right beside a stream at mandai. Out of curiosity, it was raised, only to turn into a pupa in a few hours. It became the moth in the second inat link after a lengthy 2 weeks of waiting. if any ID can be narrowed down i would think this is a good blast for a year end, haha.

    Post 28.

    Demonarosa mediodorsata.
    IDed by the orange mid-dorsum parallel bands & the two red spots at FW tornus.
    https://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-1...odidae-3-1.php

    A continental species is similar but have several spots at the FW base.
