I see you have spotted one too, Augustgray.
I believe this is a Lyssa menoetius like my spotting.
They can be mistaken easily as Lyssa zampa, they are also very common in Maliau Basin.

Thanks, AnnvanWijgerden - I think that's exactly what it is.

Looks like it might be a Tropical Swallowtail moth (Lyssa zampa), see e.g. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/666...
