23. Simulium (Gomphostilbia) longitruncum Takaoka & Davies, 1995 

Simulium (Gomphostilbia) longitruncum Takaoka & Davies, 1995: 65  –70 (Female, male, pupa and larva).

This species was described from females, males, pupae and larvae collected from Fraser’s Hill (Takaoka and Davies, 1995). An additional pupa, from which a female emerged, was collected from a stream (3–5 m wide, 1,315 m in elevation) in Simpang Pulai , Pahang. 

It is characterized in both female and male by the yellow tuft hair of the base of the radial vein (usually tuft hair is dark in this species-group), in the female by the small sensory vesicle, and in the pupa by the long common basal stalk, which is longer than the interspiracular trunk.
