Diagnosis

There is only one species of Biroia in Thailand though it is extreme in its color variation. The head and pro- and mesothorax vary from entirely black to orange. In Thailand there is little variation between these two extremes, although several of the orange forms have the vertex black. One specimen from Brunei has the head mostly black and the mesoscutum black in the posterior 2/3. The wings are melanic-infuscate basally and milky white distally. 28S sequence data for four specimens of the melanic form and one specimen of the orange and black form are identical (Fig. 2).
Biroia fuscicornis Cameron 1903[1], Cremnops satapensis Cameron 1907[2], Isopronotum seminigripenne Enderlein 1920[3], Isopronotum tricolor Enderlein 1920[3], and Biroia soror van Achterberg and Long 2010[4] are all considered here as junior synonyms of Biroia fuscicornis. The major differences between these nominal species are in coloration and it is noteworthy that all three of the taxa described by Enderlein are from the same locality, Sarawak, and presumably from similar dates. Biroia abdominalis (Enderlein 1920[3]) is also very similar and may represent the same species but until sequence data are available we choose to keep it separate, in agreement with van Achterberg and Long (2010)[4].

Distribution

Peninsular Malaysia, Borneo (Sarawak, Brunei), Indonesia (Sumatra), Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam. Distribution maps can be found at http://purl.org/thaimaps/bfuscicornis.
Examined specimens are deposited in the following collection: MZPW, BMNH, HIC, USNM, UKM, QSBG, RMNH. Braunsia. Key to Thai species of Braunsia Only two species are known from Thailand; however three species from Peninsular Malaysia are included due to their likelihood of occurring in southern Thailand.
