This species was described from New Guinea by Kleine (1935) and is here recorded from Australia for the first time. It was synonymized with M. bhamoensis (Senna, 1892)   by Damoiseau (1987) and also so treated by Sforzi & Bartolozzi (2004). However, it is clearly different from M. bhamoensis   in having the parameres not fused at the base and the prothorax hairy in front of the procoxae in males (glabrous in M. bhamoensis   ). Microtrachelizus bhamoensis   is an Oriental species that does not extend in its distribution eastwards to New Guinea.
