41. Simulium (Nevermannia) kurtaki Takaoka & Davies, 1995 

Simulium (Nevermannia) kurtaki Takaoka & Davies, 1995: 94  –97 (Female, pupa and larva).

This species was described from females, pupae and larvae collected from Mt. Tahan (Takaoka and Davies, 1995). The male remains unknown. It is distinguished from S. (N.) caudisclerum  in the pupa by the cocoon without an anterodorsal projection and the short common basal stalk, and in the larva by the absence of an accessory sclerite.

Beside the type locality, one pupa was found in a stream (1,813 m in elevation) in Brinchang, Cameron Highlands, where S. (N.) pairoti  and S. (N.) caudisclerum  breed.
