Another Rhinocypha, sadly forgotten

On 25-27 September I visited Quang Nam Province around P'rao on the HCM Highway and on the 26th spotted a Rhinocypha up in a tree above the stream. I could make some quick and dirty photos just before it flew off, never to be seen again. It is superficially similar to R. seducta from the previous post, but lacks the dorsal stripes. It is R. watsoni, a species from Central Vietnam. I forgot to post it, but now that James produced R. seducta, I remembered this species from last autumn.
