Europlema sp.  

Holloway (1979: 1345) referred to a Bornean female (slide 100) with a signum having two larger spines at its distal corners. A second female from Peninsular Malaysia (slide 326) also has this feature. Further material is needed to clarify the status of these specimens. The facies is much as in desistaria, and it may be just an aberrant genitalic form of that species.
