The record of Pinratana,1981 lacks an illustrated specimen. The figured specimens in Ek-Amnuay,[2007] are misidentifications of Tajuria isaeus, and those in Ek-Amnuay,2012 are from Malaysia and Bullis stigmata stigmata from Borneo. Therefore, this specimen obtained by Satawan Atdhabhan on 21.Jul.2019 in Betong Dist., Yala is the first reliable record from Thailand.
