status

 

Falconius dubius Günther, 1938 

Type material examined: name bearing holotype female from Leiden, and allotype male from Dresden.

Photographs of those types is available in OSF. 1♀ HOLOTYPE Midden Ost Borneo 15.VIII.1925. Leg. H. C. Siebers (MTD), 1♂ ALLOTYPE Midden Ost Borneo 15.VIII.1925. Leg. H. C. Siebers (MTD)

Type locality: Middle East Borneo.  

Notes. The species is morphologically very close to F. clavatus  . Even Günther (1938) was not sure if it was new species or just a form of F. clavatus  when describing the species. Tumbrinck uploaded photographs of specimens of F. clavatus  from Borneo to OSF and the specimens seem to be very similar. However, we will remain this question open for the detailed Falconius  revision, especially in Borneo, in the future.
