Acosmeryx shervillii.

There are both dark and light ones, and Acosmeryx pseudonaga suits well this picture, though Acosmeryx anceus (Stoll, 1781), Acosmeryx shervillii (Boisduval, 1875), Acosmeryx omissa (Rothschild and Jordan, 1903), Acosmeryx pseudomissa (Mell, 1922) either shouldn't be excluded. The series shows they are different species. Gotta know what's the difference in appearance between them.

What I think similar is only Acosmeryx shervillii, and even this has seemingly more contrast compared to pseudonaga. As for the rest from the list linked, they look quite different. Who knows.

There are three very similar species in Malaysia http://www.lepbarcoding.org/sphingidae/species_checklists.php.
