DISCUSSION: Since the publication of the original description of this taxon, additional specimens have become available through the generosity of Peter Schwendinger. Although the specimens from East Kalimantan Province, Borneo, occur some distance from all other known localities for Heissophila macrotheleae , we can detect no differences that allow us to treat this material as belonging to a separate species. We have not included unique specimen identifiers for this material.
