Diagnosis. Forewing length is 14–17 mm in males and 17–18 mm in females. The continental new subspecies ( Figs. 21–24View FIGURES 17–24) differs externally from the island nominate subspecies ( Figs. 17–20View FIGURES 17–24) by its slightly larger size, and significantly broader and orange red transverse lines of forewings (while in C. quadripartita quadripartita  the forewing transverse lines are much narrower and pale red). The male genitalia of C. quadripartita vieta  ssp. nov  . ( Figs. 35, 36View FIGURES 34–36) differ from those of C. quadripartita quadripartita  ( Fig. 34View FIGURES 34–36) in the slightly larger medial posterior diverticulum and the broader and longer medial anterior diverticulum. The female genitalia of the new subspecies ( Fig. 44View FIGURES 43–44) differ from those of the nominate subspecies ( Fig. 43View FIGURES 43–44) in the broader and longer antrum, the broader appendix bursae, and the presence of a small, second signum in the corpus bursae.

Distribution ( Fig. 46View FIGURE 46). The subspecies is known from Vietnam (provinces Lao Cai, Vinh Phu, Thua Thien Hue, Kon Tum, Lam Dong).

Etymology. The subspecific epithet refers to the country of the taxon distribution: Vietnam (Vietnamese: Việt Nam).
