Platypus variolosus Schedl, 1942: 201  .

Baiocis variolosus (Schedl)  : Browne 1962: 652.

Taxonomy: This species was described in Platypus  from the female sex only, but transferred to Baiocis  by Browne (1962). Schedl (1967) returned the species to Platypus  . The senior author has examined the lectotype (NMW). It belongs in the genus Platypus  , and is related to the species group including Platypus lunifer Schedl  and P.subdepressus Schedl  , being closest to an undescribed species from Borneo. The unknown male may already have been described under another name.

Distribution: The species is recorded from West Malaysia and Sumatra.

Biology: Unknown.
