Type locality. Vietnam, Vinh Phuc Province, Tam Dao.

Type material examined. HOLOTYPE: ♂, ‘ Vietnam, Prov.Vinh-phu (divided into Vinh Phuc and Phu Tho), Tam-dao , L. Medvedev @ Dang Dap // on Ormosia (Fab.)   // HOLOTYPUS Gonioctena (Brachy.)   medvedevi   sp. n. Cho & Borowiec 2014’ ( LMCM).   PARATYPES: 1 ♂ 1 ♀, same data as holotype plus ‘PARATYPUS Gonioctena (Brachy.) medvedevi   sp. n. Cho & Borowiec 2014’ ( LMCM);   1 ♂, same data as preceding paratype ( TLMF);   1 ♂, ‘ Vietnam, TamDao, 900 m, 4.VI.1987, L. Medvedev et al. // PARATYPUS Gonioctena (Brachy.)   medvedevi   sp. n. Cho & Borowiec 2014’ ( LMCM).  

Description. See CHO & BOROWIEC (2016a).

Differential diagnosis. Gonioctena   (B.) medvedevi   is very similar to G. (B.) longshengensis   sp. nov. and G. (B.) mauroi   in body shape, coloration and setose aedeagus. From these two species, G. (B.) medvedevi   can be distinguished only by aedeagus moderately narrowed with apical process moderately widened to lateral tooth-like projections near apex (subparallelsided with apical process broad, widest in apical 1/3 and subequal to median lobe in width in G. (B.) longshengensis   sp. nov. and subparallel-sided with apical process widest in middle and slightly narrower than median lobe in G. (B.) mauroi   ). Gonioctena (B.) kuatunensis   sp. nov. differs in semicircular apex of aedeagus (triangular or subtriangular in other species).

Distribution. Vietnam: Vinh Phuc Province ( Fig. 13 View Fig ).

Remarks. The male genitalia of Gonioctena (B.) flavipennis (Jacoby, 1888)   illustrated by YANG et al. (2014) without any doubts refer to G. (B.) medvedevi   . The correct drawings of male genitalia of G. (B.) flavipennis   were provided by CHO & BOROWIEC (2016a).
