Field notes from Isla Colon:
This uncommon moth has been recorded from Costa Rica and few other places. There are a few records on the BoLD Systems site, but in general information about H. rincon is hard to find.
The specimen pictured came to a mercury vapor lamp in a jungle/secondary growth area not far from the seashore.
