Baiocis perinimicus (Schedl) 

( Figs 5‒6 View Figure )

Platypus perinimicus Schedl, 1941: 358  .

Baiocis perinimicus ( Schedl): 1972  : 142.

Taxonomy: The senior author has examined the male lectotype, female ‘allotype’ and a male and a female paralectotypes ( NMWAbout NMW), as well as a male specimen identified by Schedl, and possibly from the type series in BMNH. The BMNH specimen has the same data as a syntype mentioned by Schedl (1941) which is not in the NMWAbout NMW collection. It has been re-identified by Browne as Baiocis incisus (Sampson)  , but is not that species. The male of B. perinimicus  can be distinguished from the similar species, B. orientalis  and B. unispineus  by the characters of the frons and elytra given in the key.

Distribution: Recorded from Indonesia (Java and Sumatra) only.

Biology: Kalshoven (1960) records the species from Castanea argentea  , C. javanica  ( Fagaceae  ), Cinnamomum camphora  ( Lauraceae  ), Eurya japonica  ( Theaceae  ), and an unidentified tree possibly belonging to the Lauraceae  . He briefly describes and ilustrates the gallery system.
