Baiocis sublunaris (Schedl) 

Crossotarsus sublunaris Schedl, 1937: 544  .

Baiocis sublunaris ( Schedl): Schedl 1972  : 143.

Taxonomy: This is by far the largest species of Baiocis  , the male measuring 4.7 mm, and the female 5.0 mm long. Only one male and one female syntypes are known ( NMWAbout NMW, examined) collected in an unspecified locality in Southeast Borneo. As noted by Wood and Bright (1992), Schedl's (1978) citation of a male holotype and female allotype is invalid. To ensure correct and consistent application of the name, the male in NMWAbout NMW bearing the labels: Borneo/ [male sign]/ Type Platypus sublunaris K.E.Schedl  / Crossotarsus sublunaris Schedl  / Holotypus Crossotarsus sublunaris Schedl  , is here designated lectotype. The female syntype becomes a paralectotype. Schedl's (1937) original description fails to mention that the first ventrite has a small, median triangular spine projecting over the base of the second ventrite, which is unarmed. The male metanepisternum bears two minute tubercles anteriorly.

Distribution: Indonesia (Kalimantan).

Biology: Unknown.
