    1) Notodontidae - Dudusa synopla
    2) Limacodidae - Scopolodes pallivitattata (the largest Limacodid I have ever seen!)
    3) Uraniidae - Lyssa menoetius (Bornean endemic, very similar to the well known L. zampa)
    4) Noctuidae - Artena inversa
    5) Noctuidae - Bastilla circumsignata
    6) Lasiocampidae - Kunugia gynandra

    Antonio, moth No. 7 is not a moth, but a Hemiptera sp (Derbidae sp?).

    No. 5 - I have been looking for this for 2 days, without success. Not giving up hope though!
    No. 6 - Lasiocampidae - Gastropacha leopoldi, I think, but the species of the Estigena sub-group can not be identified with certainty without disection. The other species of the group known from Borneo is G. philippinensis.
    No. 8 - Noctuidae - Bastilla circumsignata

    Wow! 07 really looks like a spider with even the correct shadow to match.

    In searching for others, I came upon this.
    If 05 is not the female of Imaus munda then it is likely to be something new.

    PS. The patterns varies on the hindwing, so it could be either sex.

    Thanks for the photos. However, I, personally, can not see them being the same species. There are too many differences, to me. Personal opinion only.

    There is only one species here, Imaus munda, from India to Sundaland.
    Given geographical variations I think it is a great match.

    A 2nd species I. lata is found in West Africa.
