Type material. Holotype ♂ (ZMH-A0000164). Right chelicerae dissected.

Taxonomic remarks. G. rickmersi  is currently considered a junior synonym of G. ferganensis ( Harvey 2003)  based on Birula (1907) who synonymised Gylippus syriaceus ferghanensis  and G. rickmersi  but incorrectly prioritises the second name ( Harvey 2013).

Collection remarks. The type locality is Bukhara in Uzbekistan. Roewer (1933) also mentiones G. rickmersi  in a key and gives the distribution as ‘mountainous regions of East-Turkestan and Bukhara’. 

Current systematic position. Gylippidae  , Gylippus (Anoplogylippus) ferganensis Birula 1893  .
