Crossotarsus inimicus Schedl, 1935: 482  .

Platypus inimicus ( Schedl): Schedl 1958  : 152.

Platypus velatus Schedl, 1958: 152  . Unnecessary new name for P. inimicus  ( Schedl 1935 nec Broun 1910).

Baiocis inimicus (Schedl)  : Browne 1962: 651.

Taxonomy: Schedl (1978) designated a male lectotype from the Philippines in his collection ( NMWAbout NMW). This is cited by Wood and Bright (1992). However, the lectotype is not now in the Schedl collection (H. Schönmann in litt.). Schedl (1935) also mentioned " types in the possession of Mr. W. Schultze". The Schultze collection passed after his death to the Staatliches Museum für Tierkunde, Dresden ( SMTD). The senior author has examined a male from the Schultze collection labelled with the same data as given by Schedl (1935), and determined by him as Crossotarsus inimicus  n. sp. Although not labelled as a type, it evidently belongs to the type series. The only specimen remaining in NMWAbout NMW is a male from Borneo recorded by Schedl (1965) as Platypus velatus  . This is not conspecific with the specimen in the Dresden museum, lacking the strong, truncate process on the first ventrite. It may represent an undescribed species. Schedl's (1968) record of the species (as Platypus velatus  ) from Papua New Guinea (New Britain) must also be regarded as doubtful. A male and a female from the Philippines in BMNH determined as this species by D.J. Atkinson belong in the genus Dinoplatypus Wood. 

Distribution: Known with certainty only from the Philippines.

Biology: Unknown.
