Loboscelidia bakeri  Fouts 1922: 620. Syntype males (not females) (3); Borneo: Sandakan (USNM).

Material studied.

Malaysian Borneo, Sabah, Sandakan (2 males, USNM), Kinabalu National Park Poring Hot Springs (2 males including two syntypes, CNC, USNM).

Diagnosis. Loboscelidia bakeri  can be immediately distinguished from all other Loboscelidia  species by the distinctively dorsomedially up-domed propodeum. It is also one of four species, including Loboscelidia fulgens  , Loboscelidia reducta  and Loboscelidia ganxiensis  that lack a medial vein (as in Fig. 24).
