Type material examined
Holotype of Callimerus gorhami Corporaal: “J. B. Corporaal, Sumatra’s O. K., Tandiong Merah, 18.XII.1917, 22m / Schenkling det. / S. Schenkling det. 1921: Callimerus pallidus Gorh. / Callimerus pallidus Gorh. [hw. by Schenkling] / J. B. Corporaal: Holotype: Brachycallimerus gorhami Corp., 1948 / ♀ / Brachycallimerus gorhami Corporaal, 1949, ZMAN type COLE. 1754.1” (ZMAN, ♀; Figs 81–83).
Note on Type material
The original publication of Callimerus gorhami noted that only one specimen was examined, so the holotype was fixed in the original publication by monotypy.
This species has a basal tooth on claw and metatibia with subapical projection on outer edge. Although it accords with the latifrons species-group in these two important characters, our exclusion of it from this species-group is based on the following characters: PL/PW >1 (ratio 1.1); EyD evidently larger than EyW (ratio 2.4); elytra apex with scales. Its nearest relative is still unclear.
