Falconius bedoti ( Bolívar, 1909) 

Eugavialidium bedoti: Bolívar, 1909  .

Type material (deposited in MNGN Geneva) was not examined, but the original description ( Bolívar 1909) and drawings by Günther (1938). 

Type locality: Indonesia: W Java: Bandung Regency : Pangalengan. 

Notes. The species was originally described on one male specimen from Java (deposited in MNGN Geneva), as assigned to the genus Eugavialidium  , which is today synonym of Scelimena  . Günther (1935) moved the species to the genus Falconius  and realized ( Günther 1938a) that he already reported it once, but under the name F. clavitarsis ( Günther 1937)  . Günther (1938) examined 8 specimens from W Java (Jasinga, Tjisaroea, Bogor), N Sumatra (Deli Serdang, Sirambe) and Peninsular Malaya (Penang), and noted that specimens from Java are the largest, while those from Penang and Sirambe the smallest. From Günther's (1938) drawings, it seems that species belongs to Falconius  —female has swollen distal segments of the hind tarsi. However, closer examination of the head in frontal view  is needed.
