Eusparassus   bicorniger ( Pocock, 1898)  

Sparassus bicorniger Pocock, 1898: 519   , pl. 41, fig. 9 (description and illustration of male), [holotype male, label: type, Ndi, Weiss Rd. Camp, by Steuart Betton/ Nd (Weiss Rd Camp), Aug 4–25, 1897, NHM 94.11.20.61, examined].

Eusparassus biocorniger (Pocock) Strand 1908b: 22   (unjustified combination).

Remarks. The species cannot be categorized in any known Sparassidae   genus, and it certainly does not belong to the genus Eusparassus   . More likely it is a member of an undescribed genus which would be grouped within the subfamily Sparassinae   , when more material (especially the conspecific female) from the type locality is recovered. The holotype was most likely collected between Mombasa and Lake Victoria in Kenya, formerly known as “ British East Africa ”.
