This one is T. rufoterminalis.
T. problematica has less extensive dark marks on the forewing and a much paler hindwing. The resting posture is similar.
My seriously bad.
two points of order here.
(1) the pattern note I gave is incorrect - rufoterminalis
lacks the bright orange hindwing medial zone, as well as the black thorax and forewing base. The forewing fasciae also differ in shape and relative placement, the medial and postmedial are closer to each other in "problematica"
(2) H. pulchella
was previously mis-labelled as Trichophysetis problematica
(Fabricius, 1794) in Kendrick (2002) (and all HK records before, too, so I was only perpetuating the errpr); there is no such species authored by Fabricius. The taxon problematica
was described by Strand in 1918; it is a junior synonym of rufoterminalis
hope that helps clarify the matters.
