Type locality: “Mindanao” [Philippines] Map legend:
TDWG region - Region according to the TDWG standard, not a precise distribution map.

NOTE: TDWG regions are generated automatically from the text in the distribution field and not in every cases it works well. We are working on it.
 
Reproductionoviparous 
TypesSyntypes: ZMB 5694, CAS 64235, NMW 16655: 1-2 
CommentSynonymy: partly after Brown 1980.

The original type series consisted of only 3 specimens, therefore at least one of the putative syntypes doesn’t have type status (fide BAUER et al. 1995).

Populations of L. quadrivittata from Borneo have been described as L. inexpectata by DAS & AUSTIN (2007).
