Taxonomic remark Desmoxytes aurata sp. n. is morphologically similar to D. delfae and D. perakensis sp. n. in the remarkable orange colouration, as well as some morphological characters (except characters in diagnosis). These three species show allopatric distribution ranges, and the big mountain ranges known as the Nakhon Si Thammarat and Sunkala Khiri mountains possibly act as dispersal barriers [details]

Holotype CUB CUMZ, geounit Thailand [details]
From editor or global species database
Habitat Known only from Surat Thani and Nakhon Si Thammarat Provinces. All specimens were collected in limestone mountains (on the mainland and on two islands). We also surveyed other islands in Mo Ko Ang Thong National Marine Park, but found no specimens of D. aurata sp. n. The new species is probably distributed along the islands in the Gulf of Thailand and also on the mainland near the type locality. We regard it as endemic for Thailand. [details]

Taxonomic remark Desmoxytes aurata sp. n. is morphologically similar to D. delfae and D. perakensis sp. n. in the remarkable orange colouration, as well as some morphological characters (except characters in diagnosis). These three species show allopatric distribution ranges, and the big mountain ranges known as the Nakhon Si Thammarat and Sunkala Khiri mountains possibly act as dispersal barriers [details]
