I am in serious need of help with IDing the following moths, if anyone can help?

Both are from the Kaeng Krachan Forest Complex (Chaloem Phrakiat Thai Prachan), both low altitudes, in the last few months. Am finally getting round to trying to catch up with my backlog of files from my weekend jaunts, although still no RAW convertor from Apple for the Nikon D7100 which is a pain because I have a lot of D7100 macro shot files to get through.

Moth 1 approx 20 mm wing tip - wing tip

There must be an association between this moth and flowering tree it is on because there were about 10 of the species on the flowers of a vine on a willow like tree.








Moth 2 approx 12 mm wing tip - wing tip
Possibly: Chamaita hirta and outside of recorded range

Tribe Lithosiini : Subfamily Arctiinae : Family Erebidae

Apple finally released a RAW convertor for the D7100 so am going through my shots of the last few months.

Strangest Clearwing Moth (Sesiidae?) I have seen. Very small, body length about 8-10 mm, total length say 18 mm. I thought it was a bee from its movements until I looked closer on the camera. Unfortunately not a very good shot, just a "record" shot. Huai Kha Khaeng (Sai Bo)

This, last one, is a Godonela species (Geometridae - Ennominae - Tribe, Macariini). It looks closest to G. fluidata, but that is a Bornean endemic, so probably not that. There are no references to Thai Geometridae to check.

Regarding your earlier photos, sorry, absolutely no idea. Sesiidae are very poorly researched, every single one of my photos of this family remain unidentified!

Thought I had found something special with this one but seeing it on the computer (maybe I need new glasses) it looks to be an Arctiidae with its front legs stretched out.
