A new species of the Rhynchophorid genus Cryptoderma
Resembling as to shape Cr. brevipenne Rits. 1), likewise from Borneo, but the elytra are more convex seen sideways; differing by the less regular sculpture on the prothorax and elytra; the punctures or pits are less numerous and consequently their interstices broader; the punctures are deeper and their interstices raised, which gives an uneven aspect to the upper surface especially on the sides of the elytra where the interstices are confluent. Length of the males as well as of the females, measured from the anterior margin of the prothorax to the apex of the elytra, 8—11 mm.
