Distribution  Known only from east Thailand (Chantaburi, Chonburi, Sa Kaeo and Rayong Provinces), in both limestone areas and granitic mountains. It was seen crawling on rocks during the rainy season and occurs only in natural habitat inside primary forest. The distribution area is quite narrow, and the species seems to be restricted to the eastern part of Thailand [details]

Holotype CUB, geounit Thailand [details]
From editor or global species database
Diagnosis Body black or brownish black; collum with 3 transverse rows of setae and setiferous tubercles (4+4 anterior setae, 1+1 intermediate setae and 2+2 posterior tubercles); metaterga 2–16 with two rows of 2+2 (anterior) setiferous cones and 2+2 (posterior) setiferous spines; ventral ridge (vrl) of lamina lateralis conspicuous; process (plm) of lamina medialis long, directed almost mesad; distal lobe (dlm) distally with two distinct lamellae. Similar in these respects to D. planata, but differs from that species by having paraterga yellow to orange and hypoproct subtriangular with conspicuous setiferous tubercles. [details]

Distribution  Known only from east Thailand (Chantaburi, Chonburi, Sa Kaeo and Rayong Provinces), in both limestone areas and granitic mountains. It was seen crawling on rocks during the rainy season and occurs only in natural habitat inside primary forest. The distribution area is quite narrow, and the species seems to be restricted to the eastern part of Thailand [details]

Remark The species shows variation on colour of paraterga within a population; yellow in some specimens, yellowish orange to orange in others. [details]
