59. Simulium (Simulium) tiomanense Takaoka, Sofian-Azirun & Belabut, 2012 

Simulium (Simulium) tiomanense Takaoka, Sofian-Azirun & Belabut, 2012b: 408  –412 (Male, pupa and larva).

This species was described from a pharate male, its associated pupal exuviae and a larva collected from Tioman Island ( Takaoka et al., 2012b). The female remains unknown. It is characterized in the male by the dichoptic head (in place of the usual holoptic head), which is divided by a very narrow frons, as well as the round enlarged facets (in place of the usual hexagonal facets), and in the pupa by the small pit-like organ and the gill filaments divergent at an angle of 90 degrees or slightly more.

The pupa and larvae were collected from a small lowland stream (width 0.5–2.0 m, water temperature 25̊C, shaded) moderately flowing in a forest, Tioman Island.
