The female has a marked appendix bursae as seen in some of the species groups treated first.

Geographical range. Borneo, Peninsular Malaysia (MARDI colln), Sumatra, Java (NNM, Leiden).

Habitat preference. All recent material has been taken in forest below 600m: singletons from Poring and Sook in Sabah, from Labi in Brunei and from Semongok near Kuching.
