Ataboruza lauta (Butler, 1878). 

Reliably separated from A. divisa by examining genitalia. 
This species was previously considered a synonym of A. divisa, but designated a separate species by Holloway, Moths of Borneo, Part 13. Vide MOB  
"the forewing postmedial in divisa is irregular, and the ground colour is a dark brown. The wings of lauta are a "medium pinkish brown" and that the p-m fascia is "regular with a duller brown distal component".
