See Alompra roepkei Tams.

Taxonomic notes. Differences in the male eighth sternite of the three races were noted by Tams (1953). In addition, the valve of bidiensis has the dorsal lobe short, blunt, rather than long and finger-like, and the ventral lobe is like an open hand rather than serrate, acute. The aedeagus terminates in a single spine rather than being deeply bifid.

Geographical range. N.E. Himalaya; Borneo, Sumatra; Mindanao.

Habitat preference. The only Bornean male known was taken at Bidi, Sarawak.
