Doraturopsis (Doraturopsis) heros, Emeljanov, 1999: 561  .

Length. Male: 5.3–6.2mm; female: 8.0– 8.7mm.

Ochraceous with markings as in Plate I: A–E.

Crown width as long as 1.5 x length and slightly shorter than pronotum (Plate I: A & B). Ocelli on anterior margin of head 2– 3 x their own diameter from eye. Clypellus parallel-sided (Plate I: C).

Male genitalia. Valve width more than 3 x median length, posterior margin medially convex ( Fig. 1View FIGURE 1 B). Subgenital plate triangular divergent apically, with about 8 scattered macrosetae and several fine setae laterally ( Fig. 1View FIGURE 1 B). Style preapical lobe triangular, apophysis moderately long, laterally curved ( Figs 1View FIGURE 1 C–E). Connective with anterior arms closely appressed or crossed, with distinct stem ( Fig. 1View FIGURE 1 F). Aedeagal shaft cylindrical, robust, hinged at base; gonopore large, subapical on dorsal surface ( Figs 1View FIGURE 1 G, 1 H).

Female genitalia. Pygofer without macrosetae, with few short fine setae (Plate I: D). Sternite VII truncated on posterior margin (Plate I: E).

Material examined. China: Gansu Prov.: 3 males, Dunhuang, 20–22.VI. 1964, coll. Chou Io (Zhou Yao) & Liu Shaoyou ( NWAFU); Xinjiang Autonomous Regions: 1 male, Kashi, 1300m, 29.VI. 1979, coll. Chen Tong ( NWAFU); 1 female, Shule City, Danhu, 1100m, 1.IX. 1979, coll. Li Fasheng ( CAUAbout CAU); 6 males, 4 females, Changji Agriculture School, 13.XI. 1986, coll. Zhang Yalin ( NWAFU); 1 female, Changji Agriculture School, 27.VI. 1987, coll. Wang Min ( NWAFU); 1 male, 2 females, Kuerle City, 16.XI. 1986, coll. Zhang Yalin ( NWAFU).

Distribution. Palearctic.

Remarks. Figs 1View FIGURE 1 C–E show the variation of the style. Fig. 1View FIGURE 1 C shows the style attached to part of the subgenital plate. As the color of the subgenital plate is similar to the style it has often been figured as a single pincer-shaped structure ( Dlabola, 1958; Kalkandelen, 1974; Emeljanov, 1999). When the style is fully dissected it appears as in Figs 1View FIGURE 1 D and 1 E.
