Cacopsylla (Hepatopsylla) qiuzili Li 

( Figs 60–67View FIGURES 60 – 67)

Cacopsylla qiuzili Li, 2011: 881  .

Adult. Coloration: Body yellow. Vertex bright yellow, sometimes with orange patterns varying from irregular small cloudings in the sub margin to occupying vast major of vertex; discal foveae brown. Genal process yellow, apex sometimes orange. Antenna brown, segments III–VIII with darker apices, segments IX–X entirely black. Thorax brown in ground colour except for pronotum, metascutum and metascutellum which are yellow, with wide black stripes. Legs yellow, profemora and mesofemora more or less darkened into black. Fore wing transparent, with one dark brown marking near apex of claval suture; fields alongside veins R, R 1, Rs, M+Cu, M, M 1 + 2, M 3 + 4, Cu, Cu 1 a and Cu 1 b yellowish, forming broad obscure bands along these veins, leaving small uncolored fields in the centre of cells r 1, r 2, m 1, m 2 and cu 1, making apical 2 / 3 of fore wing appearing yellowish in general ( Fig. 67View FIGURES 60 – 67); veins yellow. Abdomen yellow, terga of segments III–V (the first 3 visible segments) dark brown, the corresponding sterna sometimes also. Male terminalia black. Female terminalia brown, proctiger and subgenital plate with dark brown pattern as shown in Fig. 65View FIGURES 60 – 67.

Structures: Body glabrous. Head nearly vertical with longitudinal body axis, slightly wider than mesoscutum. Vertex ( Fig. 61View FIGURES 60 – 67) finely sculptured with microscopic setae and scaly micro structures that are relatively large, smooth and more or less attached with each other. Genal processes ( Fig. 60View FIGURES 60 – 67) elongate cone-shaped and moderately divergent, about as long as vertex along median suture, and covered with long setae; apex acute. Antenna long and slender, slightly squiggly; terminal setae ( Fig. 66View FIGURES 60 – 67) about as long as each other, and obviously longer than antennal segment X. Metatibia with sharp basal spine, apical spurs arranged in (1 + 3 + 1). Fore wing ( Fig. 67View FIGURES 60 – 67) oval, widest in about the middle; pterostigma short, ending in the middle of cell r 1; cell cu 1 tall and near quadrate, turning of vein Cu 1 a near right angle; surface spinules present in all cells, leaving narrow spinule-free stripes along veins, fields narrowing along wing margin in cells r 2, m 1, m 2 and cu 1; 4 sets of radular spinules present in cells r 2, m 1, m 2 and cu 1, not obviously reduced in r 2.

Male terminalia: Proctiger ( Fig. 62View FIGURES 60 – 67) slender, slightly arched, evenly covered with short setae. Paramere ( Figs 62 & 64View FIGURES 60 – 67) lamellar, relatively short and robust, apex rounded and projected caudad, posterior margin thickened; short setae present in both inner and outer surface, moderately longer and denser in posterior margin than in anterior margin. Apical dilatation ( Fig. 63View FIGURES 60 – 67) of aedeagus near triangular, with the sclerotised end tube of ductus ejaculatorius projecting beyond the dorsal margin and curved. Subgenital plate ( Fig. 62View FIGURES 60 – 67) near spherical, with several setae that vary in length in dorsal margin; ventral surface covered with sparse short setae.

Female terminalia ( Fig. 65View FIGURES 60 – 67) relatively short. Proctiger slightly sinuate dorsally, dorsal surface covered with setae that vary in length; laterally and apex of apical part covered with peg setae, the field involved completely surrounded by fields of short setae. Subgenital plate evenly covered with short setae and peg setae.

Liaoning, 2 male, 1 female, Qingyuan, vi. 1989, Sun Lihua.

Distribution. China: Jilin, Liaoning.

Host plant. Pyrus ussuriensis  .

Remarks. This species is easily diagnosed by its unique abdominal color with the terga of the first three visible segments dark brown.
