That’s a stunning spider! There are a lot of options in Heteropoda for Malaysia, some poorly described. This site is in a state of disarray, I’d hate for your finds to get lost here. iNaturalist might be a better option in the long term and if you’re on facebook there are some good arachnology groups there with people who are familiar with Malaysian species.

Yes it is.
