Note that it's common name isn't it's real name. I call it that because there is a distinctive bright red line between it's hairy head and thorax. It's main color is creamy brown. Legs and antennas are black, and so are it's dotted patterns. I have finally identified this as a Lemya bornemontana. It was tough for me to identify this because there is a pattern morph in this moth. It has less black spots on the lower streak on it's wings than other moths of the same species.
Lower forest elevation of Kinabalu Park, Kundasang, Sabah, Malaysia.
I found it in the same resting hut as the atlas moth. It is resting on the stony wall of the hut, awaiting nightfall. >>>Map accuracy : 50m diameter.
