“Stylocellus” spinifrons Roewer, 1942  

Stylocellus spinifrons Roewer, 1942: 277   , plate XX, figs. 5 a–c. See complete synonymy in Giribet 2000: 69.

Comments: As with L. laevichelis   , the description of Stylocellus spinifrons   contains little information that would properly ally this species with the correct genus, and although it has illustrations, they are incomplete and imprecise. I have thus obtained the type specimen, which, although noted as a female in the description, is actually a juvenile. The overall shape and location ( Sarawak, Bornean Malaysia) would suggest it is a species of Miopsalis   , but this cannot be said with any certainty, and it is at present impossible to match this juvenile with one of the many species found in the region.

Material examined: Holotype, juvenile [identified as female on label] (Senckenberg Museum, Frankfurt ( SGN), Roewer collection no. 5338), Borneo, Sarawak, no collection date given, determined by Roewer 1942   .
