    Mr.Phark, can i ask a question?...last time ppl say my "indonesian black tip'' is also Sc. subspinipes subspinipes .. so u are saying "black tip" and "indonesian black tip'' are same species? just that they appear in different colour form??

    Yes, that's just my conjecture.

    Phark lol. You're a genius! As I guess, you have the key?

    The pictures are terrible. Too bad to identify species.
    Give MORE and BETTER pic.

    a good starter for the new year :D

    i like it's colors, nice catch!!!

    but as said above, some more detailed pictures could bring solution to your problem in IDying this pede,....
    although i also think it's not far from subspinipes.
    (but that's just a feeling ;) morsitans or another specie still is possible too, but the shape of the head and 1st tergite made me guess subspinipes)

    The sarcasm was uncalled for. I said it was purely my conjecture.
