    Any idea on the ID of this small moth?

    Nacoleia species.

    There is very little on Crambidae .
    There used to be a website on Pyralids of Borneo, a beta version which have now been removed.

    There are other sightings.

    This is probably the female. Correction: Probably N. biformis. Note rounded discal spots.

    Same species from Fraser's Hill.

    Different subspecies or species from Kinabalu.

    Can't be N. biformis.
