Material examined. 2 / 2 /0, first stream Minduk Sirung Trail, Alab Station, Crocker  Range, Borneo, Malaysia, 5 º 49.249 N 116 º 19.862 E, alt. 1781 m asl., 23 -ix- 2012; 2 / 6 /0, Mahua stream, Mahua, Crocker  Range, Borneo, Malaysia, 5 º 47.838 N, 116 º 24.510 E, alt. 1052 m asl., 21 -ix- 2012; 1 / 1 /0 (mounted), stream Kemantis, Sayap, Mt Kinabalu, Borneo, Malaysia, 6 º 0 9.841 N 116 º 33.936 E, alt. 928 m asl., 16 -ix- 2012; 0/ 2 /0, Great Lumotok stream, Mt Kinabalu, Borneo, Malaysia, 6 º 0 9.336 N 116 º 34.056 E, alt. 1087 m asl., 17 -ix- 2012; 1 / 1 /0, Little Lumotok stream, Sayap, Borneo, Malaysia, 6 º 0 9.467 N 116 º 34.027 E, alt. 1069 m asl., 17 -ix- 2012.

Compared material. Atractides propatulus ( K. Viets, 1935)  : Lectotype ♂, here designated (on the same slide with the paralectotype, one palp and right I-leg separate), SMF 4322 Atractides propatulus  ♂, type, K.Viets 42768, Java, Tjibodas, 1400 m, Kali Tjiwalen, 14.7. 1929. Paralectotypes SMF 4322 1 ♂ (on the same slide with lectotype), SMF 4336 1 ♀ (both palps and left I-leg- 5 / 6 separate), labeled like lectotype. The original description does not contain a type designation.

Remarks. The specimens from Borneo differ in larger dimensions of idiosoma, I-leg- 5 / 6 and palp. For clearing the taxonomic state of these populations, molecular techniques should be applied.

Distribution. South Sumatra ( K. Viets 1935), Sulawesi ( Pešić & Smit 2009), Borneo (our study).
