Mazarredia planitarsus: Hancock 1907 

Type material examined. 1♂ SYNTYPE N.W. Borneo: Kuching leg. Sarawak Museum 7.VII. [18]99.  , 1♀ SYNTYPE N.W. Borneo Kuching 29.VI.1900. Leg. R. Shelford (UMO). Photographs of the syntypes are available online in OSF.

Notes. The species belongs to the genus Falconius— lateral  ocelli are between the eyes and the distal tarsal segment is swollen in females. This is species without ventrolateral spines. Günther (1938) reported three new specimens belonging to this species (from Sarawak: Dulit Mt.) and a female specimen from Kinabalu as this species, but with a question mark. Günther (1938) compared the species with F. pseudoclavitarsis  (but uses the wrong specific epitheton— pseudoplanitarsis  ) and F. deceptor  .
