Abstract
"The genus Liphistius is redefined to include those liphistiids with clavate trichobothria, a retrolateral apophysis on the male palpal tibia, and internal female genitalia consisting of a ventral receptacular cluster and a dorsal poreplate. Two species, L. tonkinensis Bristowe and L. schensiensis Schenkel, are transferred to Heptathela. As redefined, Liphistius includes 14 species known only from eastern Burma, western Thailand, Malaysia, and Sumatra. Nine of these species are newly described: L. lordae from Burma, L. bristowei and L. trang from Thailand, and L. yangae, L. langkawi, L. murphyorum, L. panching, L. tioman, and L. johore from Malaysia. the males of L. birmanicus Thorell, L. desultor Schiödte, and L. sumatranus Thorell are described ofr the first time"--P.
