ID based on genitalia, the black and pink circled area are the key.

H.tritonaria belong to a group that their genitalia are quite different from the photo here, and should look similar to https://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-9/geometrini/geometrini_38_1.php

While H.marina has similar genetalia structure with H.insularia but the shape in the pink circle is more angular and wide.

H. insularia genitalia

Besides the difference in genitalia, H. tritonaria larvae is brown with spikes.

H. marina have a more rounded headshell, and often feed on flowers.
