Descriptive notes. Likhitrakarn et al. (2015b) described the collum of this species with three transverse rows of setiferous spines: 3+3 anterior, 3+3 intermediate and 1+1 posterior (totally 16 spines). In fact, their images ( Likhitrakarn et al., 2015b: fig. 2A) and our material clearly show the collum with 14 spines in total, arranged in three transverse rows: 3+3 anterior spines, 2+2 intermediate spines and 2+2 posterior spines.

Remarks. This species was originally described as Desmoxytes rhinoceros , but it was recently assigned to the re-validated genus Hylomus by Srisonchai et al. (2018a). The additional specimens examined here fall well within the originally reported distribution of this species in southern Laos (Champasak and Sekong provinces).
