Philinopsis speciosa from Perhentian, Malaysia
 

Thanks to Mary Jane Adams for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from Mary Jane Adams: This image is not clear enough to ID with certainty, but the front end looks flat and squared off so I think it is not P. gardineri. It could be a dark form of P. speciosa, but the red color on the anterior end is odd.
