scientific name

Prolygus subrufilori (Lu & Zheng, 2004 )
status

comb. nov.

Prolygus subrufilori (Lu & Zheng, 2004)   comb. nov.

Neolygus subrufilori Lu & Zheng, 2004   in ZHENG et al. (2004): 425, 756 (original description).

Distribution. P. R. China (Yunnan) ( ZHENG et al. 2004).

Comments. The original description, biometrics and illustrations of the male genitalia ( ZHENG et al. 2004) clearly suggest that this Chinese species should be placed in Prolygus   , instead of Neolygus   . Based on the male genitalia, P. subrufilori   is most closely related to P. nigriclavus   , from which it can be distinguished by the almost uniformly yellowish brown dorsum, pale basal 0.80 of antennal segment II, and darkened apical inner corner of the corium.
