Type material examined.

Holotype of Callimerus pallidus  Gorham: "Carin Chebà, 900-1000 m, L. Fea V XII-88 / Typus / pallidus Gorh. [hw. by Gorham] / C. pallidus Gorh. Typus! Birmania, L. Fea, 6476 [hw. by Raffaello Gestro] / Holotype: Callimerus pallidus Gorham, 1892, ♀, det. Yang G. Y., 2011" (MCSN, ♀; Figs 79-80).

Note on Type material.

The original publication of Callimerus pallidus  noted that only one specimen was examined, so the holotype was fixed in the original publication by monotypy.

Taxonomic position.

Although this species has a basal tooth on claw, and we didn’t examine its character of metatibia subapical projection (the only examined specimen is glued on board with metatibia not viewable), we are still confident to exclude it from the latifrons species-group for the following character states: PL/PW >1 (ratio 1.2), EyD evidently larger than EyW (ratio 1.9). Its nearest relative within the large genus Callimerus  is still unclear.
