Poliosia sp. 5463  

There may be yet a fourth species in the muricolor group with facies like muricolor. This has a bifid juxta but a narrow uncus and broad valves with the cleft separating the broad saccular process from the rest relatively short. The aedeagus vesica is deep, with a large cornutus as in bifida, but part of the depth is produced by a distinct spherical lateral lobe. The only specimen is from Poring at 600m on the eastern side of G. Kinabalu, a locality where both muricolor and quadrifida also occur.
