Yeah me too @Albert, but I usually don't have time to research as much. I try to learn more, but forget even faster ;)

Thanks again, @Gaia80 but I get most of the info by Googling and Wikipedia :D

Cool, you have a lot of knowledge! Wish I one day get close to being somewhat illuminated when it comes to nature and it's inhabitants :)

Thanks, @Gaia80.
The species Synanthedon tipuliformis is endemic to the Palearctic ecozone, but is an invasive species in the Nearctic ecozone and the Australasia ecozone. So, probably not the species or like you said, a sub-species. Unless its also an invasive species to Borneo.

Looks a bit like the Synanthedon tipuliformis, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synanthedo... it's not this one but maybe a subspecies?
