Conidarnes sumatranae was included in several phylogenetic analyses
(Cruaud et al. 2011a; Cruaud et al. 2011b; Farache et al. 2013) and was referred as Conidarnes sp. ex F. sumatrana 2085_02w01a or as Undescribed genus sp. ex. F. sumatrana (2085_02w01a). The following molecular markers are available in GenBank for this species: COI (HM770620.1), CytB (HM770576.1), EF1a (HM770522.1), and rRNA 28S (HM770682.1), they were sequenced from the male paratype that has
been subsequently dried and mounted on card.
