Metaphoenia sp. 
Three further females from Pulo Laut (slide 17184), lowland forest in the Barito Ulu of Kalimantan (slide 19277) and alluvial forest at 100m near the western end of the Melinau Gorge (slide 19032; Mulu survey) have genitalia slightly different from those of the females of
plagifera, though the eighth segment is similarly only scobinate anteriorly: there are less distinct pockets within the antevaginal pouch; the corpus bursae is shorter, more as in carneipennis. Males from Singapore (slides 17185, 19243) with rather small, basally situated valve processes (Fig 781), may be involved also, but represent a mismatch in locality.

sp. 17184
