TypesHolotype: ZRC 2.6966, adult male, collected on 11 October 2008 by L. L. Grismer, Norhayati A., Chan, K. O., D. Belabut, and J. L. Grismer.
Paratypes.—Adult females (ZRC LSUHC 2.6967–68 and LSUHC 9123–24) collected from same locality on the same date as the holotype and by the same collectors; adult female (ZRC 2.6969) collected at same locality as holotype by Chan, K. O., C. Johnson, and L. Grismer on 19 September 2009. 
CommentDiagnosis.
