Are the tibiae spiny ? if not: Paroplites inermis (Aurivillius, 1910)

For me, P.inermis, have a look at this picture:
left : ritsemai / Sumatra
right: inermis / Borneo

> shape of pronotum, tibiae, third antennal segment....

For me, these two females belong to different genera.
The left one looks like Rhaphipodus sp.

Following the last revision of the genus Paroplites/Cnemoplites by Komiya, Drumont & Delahaye,2021 the Nasa's specimen is a female of Paroplites oculatus Sp.nov. as well as the right specimen of my picture.
The female on the left probably does not belong to the genus Paroplites (maybe Rhaphipodus).
