Falconius becvari ( Buzzetti & Devriese, 2008)  , comb. nov.

Gavialidium becvari: Buzzetti & Devriese, 2008  .

Type material (deposited in Buzzetti's collection) was not examined, but the drawings from the original paper and the description were. Also, the second author of the species (H. Devriese) was reviewer of the paper and did not disagree with the new combination. Drawings in the paper ( Buzzetti & Devriese 2008) are good and presence of the head frontal view  drawing is very helpful in assigning the species to the correct genus.

Type locality: N Sumatra: Gunung Leuser NP: Bukit Lawang 

Notes. Gavialidium becvari Buzzetti & Devriese, 2008  has the lateral  ocelli between the eyes (as opposed to on the lower margin of the compound eyes), lacks strong pronotal projections (as opposed to presence), frontal costa is short in frontal view  (as opposed to long), fastigium is slightly wider than an eye, and lacks horns. All of those are characters of Falconius  so we introduce a new combination— Falconius becvari ( Buzzetti & Devriese, 2008)  comb. nov. Since the species was described on a single male (holotype), it is not known if female specimens have swollen distal segment of the hind tarsi.
