    H. jugalis is similar but the outer margin of the dark triangular patch is twice excavated.

    5 looks correct. Notarcha aurolinealis . Widespread from eastern Asia to Australia.

    14. Cleora alienaria Geometridae.
    The postdiscal fascia are strongly angled after the eyespots; subbasal band cut across the upper aqbdomen.
    Appearance varies.

    21. Dysphania subrepleta female.
    This species have broader black fasciae which tend to link.

    22. Mocis frugalis is correct.

    11. Simplicia concisalis. Erebidae, Herminiinae.
    Two similar species, but S. butesalis have the markings ( 2 fasciae & the 'spot' in between) obscure.
    http://www.jpmoth.org/~dmoth/Digital...concisalis.htm

    17. Zurobata vacillans. Erebidae, Beletobiinae.
    https://www.flickr.com/photos/hkmoth...57622504830588

    19. Achaea serva. female.
    The FW markings match well. Variable.

    18. Luceria oculalis . Erebidae, Hypenodinae.
    This species has a darkening of the front part separating it from similar Rivula species.

    No. 9. Very likely Orgyia aranea female. Erebidae. Lymantrinae.

    The Orgyia male as with all Lymantrines have broadly bipectinate antennae. Its legs are also rather hairy.
    The commonest species O. postica has a wingless female.
    It is also readily ID'ed by the large circular dark discal mark.
    Male O. postica.

    The male O. osseata is highly variable. As stated in the text the female have dark marks.
    http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-5/...gyiini_1_2.php

    The male O. araea may be confused with the male osseata, but the female is without dark spots.
    The image also shows a dark vertical line on the thorax.
    http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-5/...gyiini_1_3.php

    Since this is a female ( narrower antennae, & not hairy legs) it looks to be correctly O. araea.

    I am afraid the rest have no match.
    Some do look familiar & are obviously Crambidae/Pyralidae.
    Without proper references it is extremely difficult or impossible.
