    Erebidae, Arctiinae, Syntomini
    the long cell in the forewing from the base to the anal angle / tornus excludes the genus Amata. Candidate genera to follow up with would be Caeneressa and Syntomoides. - Info credit: Roger Kendrick.

    THe Samia is a lovely difference from the garish looking Atlas Moth.
    I wonder if Saturnids are distasteful as their slow flight & large size make them very vulnerable to attack.

    The 2nd have no match , either in wing or body patterns.

    TL Seow : Cheers.
