9. Simulium (Gomphostilbia) tanahrataense Takaoka, Sofian-Azirun  & Ya’cob, 2014

Simulium (Gomphostilbia) tanahrataense: Takaoka et al., 2014f: 61  –63 (Male and pupa).

This species was described from two males reared from pupae ( Takaoka et al., 2014f). Its female and larva are unknown. The male of S. (G.) tanahrataense  is similar to those of S. (G.) sofiani  and S. (G.) lurauense  in having a similar number of enlarged upper-eye facets, a dark scutum without longitudinal vittae and a similar shape of the ventral plate, but is clearly distinguished from the latter two species by the bicolored, much widened hind basitarsus.

The pupae were collected from a small stream at high elevation (1,470 m) in Cameron Highlands.
