Adult specimens of Plesiophrictus have a divided tarsus scopula. P. guangxiensis however has an undivided tarsus scopula as adult. the specimen described was a juvenile..... that explains the divided scopula in the description.

But it doesn't explain how they could overlook the lyra? (Only found in Selenocosmiinae - not in Ischnocoliinae).
