Oxus multiscutatus ( Wiles & Chamberlain, 2006) 

( Fig. 3View FIGURE 3)

Material examined. 1/1/0, swamp Kaeng Leang Chan , Maha Sarakham Province, 16° 11.469ʹ N, 103° 12.413ʹ E, 2-xi-2016. 

Remarks. The excretory pore platelet of both male and female of our specimens differ from the holotype described by Wiles & Chamberlain (2006). The pointed posterior extension is lacking in the holotype. However, within the genus Oxus  , more species show a variation in the excretory pore platelet, e.g. O. carpenteri (Halbert, 1911)  . Oxus multiscutatus  is previously known from Malaysia only, and here it is reported for the first time for Thailand.
