3. Simulium (Gomphostilbia) brinchangense Takaoka, Sofian-Azirun & Hashim, 2014 

Simulium (Gomphostilbia) brinchangense: Takaoka et al., 2014f: 55  –61 (Female, male pupa and larva).

This species was described from females, males, pupae, and larvae ( Takaoka et al., 2014f). It is similar to S. asakoae  but distinguished from the latter species in the male by the brown upper-eye facets, in the pupa by abdominal segments 1 and 2 not darkened on the dorsal surface and in the larva by the head capsule which is not darkened around the postgenal cleft.

The pupae and larvae were collected from a small stream at high elevation (1,813 m) in Cameron Highlands.

This species was once recorded from Vietnam ( Takaoka et al., 2014c). However, it was later described as a new species, S. (G.) sanchayense Takaoka & Lau  , based on an analysis of the COIAbout COI gene sequences (Takaoka et al., 2017a).
