    The pattern matches the female of this very closely. (Practically certain.)

    This will be a first as the species is listed as a Bornean endemic.

    The next closest species is not quite right.
    The HW margin is not marked with yellow& the FW patches smaller, the ground not variegated.

    Many thanks, Dr Seow for the ID of this moth.
    I did a google search of the species, and found it also appearing at this web page: https://www.jungledragon.com/image/1...a_phlogea.html.

    Here is another shot of this individual found at USR.
