This female specimen, in fair condition, strongly resembles the two males from Sabah described as K. pinax   above and may be conspecific with them. However, the sparse material available, the lack of females from the type locality, and the wide geographic separation provide sufficient taxonomic uncertainty to suggest caution. We therefore prefer to treat this specimen as unidentified awaiting further material.
