Rhynchina obliquarlis is a moth of the Erebidae family. It can be found in India in the Himalaya.[1]

R.obliquarlis had been widely confused with Hypena obacerralis in the past. Hypena masurialis was an unnecessary replacement name for R.obliquarlis but most sights under this species name are probably Hypena obacerralis.
