Abstract

The Amphicnemis species occurring in Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore are reviewed, and two new species are described: A. bebar and A. hoisen (holotype for both: Malaysia, Pahang, Sungai Bebar). Keys to both sexes of all species are provided. A. ecornuta is recorded from Borneo for the first time. A summary of the distributions of the named species of Amphicnemis occurring in Sundaland is given. Four species of Amphicnemis are now known from Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore, and twelve from Borneo.
