Owl butterflies of Ngangao night

I had lots of spear time in the forest. During this time I took pictures of moths. These moths that fly during the night are large. One up above the title is as large as my hand. This beautiful butterfly is less common, but strikingly beautiful.

The other, way more common moth, is slightly smaller, and very common in Ngangao Forest. In Mbololo there is less these very common owl butterflies.

These large moths were flying majestically in the air, or they rested on the leaves, branches or on the ground.

What are these species and what is their role in the forest?
