Previous records. China ( Chen et al., 1980), India, Malaysia and Thailand (Provinces of Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai and Kanchanaburi, Ehara & Bhandhufalck, 1977).

Remarks. Measurements of the specimens collected in Thailand are similar to those of the holotype, but Z 4, s 4, Sge I, Sge II, Sge III and Sge IV are about 20 % longer and Z 5 is about 30 % longer, consistent with the fact that the specimens examined are slightly larger than the holotype. The measurements of the Thai specimens are also similar to those reported by Ehara & Bhandhufalck (1977) for specimens from Thailand and Denmark & Muma (1989) for a specimen of unspecified origin (probably from India).
