Thanks more to you, @Ornithoptera80 as I originally also got the snyonym Genus and you helped with the species name :)

Eupterote is probably the correct name, Sphingognatha is a synonym. Thanks for the correction Albert.

Thanks, @Ornithoptera80 for the ID.
I looked it up and also other references (Wikipedida and Moths of Borneo), its listed as Eupterote muluana though.
