Remarks.

Redescribed based on new material from Khone Phapen Waterfall, Laos ( Likhitrkarn et al. 2014), this species is distinguished by a more Orthomorpha  -like colour patterm (only paraterga being contrasting light), yet, like a rather typical Antheromorpha  , its solenophore tip is deeply split. It is the latter character that justifies the assignment of this species to Antheromorpha  . The ♂ holotype of Antheromorpha paviei  is deposited in the Paris Museum, France ( Brölemann 1896, 1904).
