Formosatettix tianmushanensis , 2001, p. 162 – 163 (holotype – ♀, China: Zhejiang, Tianmushan; in Nankai University , China; examined) .

Notes

We examined the holotype of F. tianmushanensis and compared with type specimen photographs and the description of F. xiai ( Zheng et al. 2015) and found that morphology and distribution are completely identical in both taxa. Thus, we synonymise F. xiai with F. tianmushanensis .
