CommentAbundance: only known from its original description (Meiri et al. 2017). 
EtymologyEtymology. The specific epithet rosichonariefi combines the names of two Indonesian scientists. We would like to recognize the contributions made by Rosichon Ubaidillah, an entomologist and director of the Museum Zoologicum Bogoriense (MZB), and Ahmad Jauhar Arief, a former director of MZB. Both gentlemen are very supportive and provide opportunities and facilities for young researchers at the MZB to develop their skills. We fell that naming a species after them is a much-deserved honor.
