Baiocis unispineus Roberts 

( Fig. 15 View Figure )

Baiocis unispineus Roberts, 1986: 39  .

Taxonomy: The specific name is mis-spelt as unispinosus in both the Wood and Bright (1992) catalog and its two supplements ( Bright and Skidmore 1997, 2002). The senior author has examined the holotype and male and female paratypes ( BMNH). The species is closely related to B. orientalis  described above, but can be distinguished by characters given in the diagnosis of that species.

Distribution: The species is known only from the type series collected in Papua New Guinea.

Biology: The type series was collected from Xanthophyllum papuanum  ( Polygalaceae  ).
