Taxonomy: The senior author has compared the male lectotype and female allotype of B. pernanulus  ( NMWAbout NMW) with specimens of both sexes in RABAbout RAB from Australia, Brunei, the Philippines, and West Malaysia, and these with the male holotype and a male paratype of Platypus annularis  ( NMWAbout NMW) from Papua New Guinea, and the male holotype and a male paratype of B. solomonicus  ( BMNH) from the Solomon Islands. They represent the same species, which is rather variable in size (1.9‒2.4 mm long), but shows no morphological characters which would allow division into distinct species. Specimens in RABAbout RAB and other collections which Browne identified as B. pernanulus  are in fact the species described above as B. orientalis  . The female of Platypus annularis  described by Schedl (1975), is not conspecific with the male, and belongs in the genus Crossotarsus Chapuis ( Roberts, 1989)  .

New records: BRUNEI, Temburong, nr K. Belalong Field Stud. Centre, 4°33' N, 115°09' E, 250 m, 21.ii.1992 (R.A. Beaver) (1 male)GoogleMaps  ; as previous except: 150 m, 29.ii.1992 (1 male). CHINA, S. Yunnan, (Xishuangbanna) 23 km NW Jinghong, vic. Na Ban village ( NNNR), 22°10’N, 100°39’E, 700‒1000 m, v.‒vii. 2009 (L. Meng) (1 female)GoogleMaps  .

Distribution: Australia, Brunei Darussalam, China, East and West Malaysia, Laos, Papua New Guinea,

Philippines, Solomon Is.  , Thailand.

Biology: Most of the host records for this species given by Browne (1984), Ohno et al. (1987a, b), Ohno (1990) were based on specimens identified by F.G. Browne, and should probably be referred to B. orientalis  .
