    Post 80.

    It has to belong to the genus Retina, but there is hardly any information .
    This one is from HK. Retina rubrivitta.

    The Retina species with a red costal band are only found far north eg. Vietnam, China.

    In a check on the Chalcosiinae types of pattern only 2 genera have a red costal band.
    The other is Rhodopsona which is largely sympatric to the red Retina.
    Note below is PDF of Chalcosiinae classification. page 195 for patterns, 198-199 for Rhodopsona Type I pattern.

    Example of Rhodopsona costata. Vietnam,

    One species with a red costal stripe extends down to the Malay Peninsula, Rhodopsona bocki.
    By inference it is likely to be this species.
    No pix available.
