Simulium (Simulium) rudnicki Takaoka & Davies, 1995: 155  –157 (Female); Takaoka & Choochote, 2004: 311–314 (Male, pupa and larva).

This species was described from females collected from Langkawi Island (Takaoka and Davies, 1995), and later recorded from Thailand ( Kuvangkadilok and Takaoka, 2000). The male, pupa and larva were described from specimens collected from Thailand ( Takaoka and Choochote, 2004b). It is characterized in the female by the ovipositor valve with inner and posterior margins narrowly transparent and the simple claw, in the male by the flat ventral plate and in the pupa by the cocoon with a large anterolateral window on each side and gill with six filaments.

No additional samples have been collected from Peninsular Malaysia.
