    The two species O. angulata & vita are confusingly similar & MoB's description of the antemedial appears to be imprecise.
    However there are correct specimens lodged in at BOLD.
    These can be compared with the fieldshots.

    Odonestis angulata.
    White discal spots & fasciae antemedial & postmedial well-defined.

    BOLD specimens.

    Odonestis vita.
    White discal spot & fasciae poorly defined.

    BOLD specimens.

    Verdict: This shot should be Odonestis angulata.

    The two species D. olivacea & polyphaenaria are easily confused.

    D olivacea.
    FW subapical costal mark strong, dark.
    Postmedial (line) strong in the costal part. usually angled more widely. Costal ending acute.

    Dindica polyphaenaria.
    FW subapical costal dark patch weak.
    Postmedial line very poorly defined in the lower 2/3. Costal ending less acute.

    Dear Doctor Seow,

    In addition to the interesting skipper ive shot today in the skipper post in the general forums, i also shot a few funny funny moths which i have zero clue where to start, and i require some of your advice.

    1 - https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/152367108
    Tribe Eupitheciini - pug moths and friends, but im not sure where to find

    2 - https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/152367107
    i have zero clue

    3 - https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/152367126
    seems to be the same as 2, but might be different

    4 - https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/152367111
    one of the least cooperative thing ive shot today. Doesnt bother staying still, think its a fairy moth

    I've really got to buy the asia moth books one of the days...
