Graphirhacus penicillatus. Note: Although Attems associated this species with platyrhacids from the Sunda islands, it seems to me that it should be located near the Papuan platyrhacids brought under the tribe Psaphodesmini. The telopodite of the gonopods, a simply curved prong briefly split near the apex into two small branches, seems of the psaphodesmine type although lacking most of the branches. Perhaps it is related to Pleorhacus; it seems to approach species like Pleorhacus vicinus (Carl).
