Pentax PH-RBF77 lens hood: which lens(es)?

Hi all,
I found the Pentax
PH-RBF77 hood for sale on a website, advertised as the proper hood for the 645 Pentax-FA 80-160mm lens. I'm wondering if this is also the correct hood for the Pentax-A (manual focus) 80-160mm. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

According to the Lens Database both lenses have a 77mmfilter thread but the Pentax-A 80-160 F4.5 uses a screw-in type hood (RH-A 77mm) while the FA a bayonet type( PH-RBF 77).

Yeah from what I recall that sounds about right- most A-series lenses (if not all) used screw-in hoods.
