It's called Pentax RH-A 58mm. Rubber Hood A 58mm. Search for it on eBay.

But any 58mm hood for a standard lens should work.

I googled the part number and Samy's lists it for .... hold on to your hat...$64.00 No way! What I did was, IIRC, order a square hood to screw into the lens threads. The hood has a screw lock to orient it properly. Works fine, the cost was, I think, way under $20. Probably from Fotodiox.

I recommend those threaded metal hoods. In my experience, those square metal hoods, as nice as they appear, are not very stable. Just a word of caution. I bought several initially, and then replaced them with ordinary round hoods.

I got a 58mm rubber hood at B&H. It was the the B+W 58mm #900 folding rubber lens hood. Works great for $13.00

My 75/2.8 takes a 58mm not a 55mm.

That's an oversight on my part. I bought from the same ebay company, but also got the 58mm hood for the same price.
