Xiphidiopsis bifurcata: Liu & Bi, 1994  , Acta Zootaxonomica Sinica, 19(3): 329.

Discussion: Nefateratura  was proposed for a species bearing unpaired terminal projections on the male 10th abdominal tergite as a subgenus of Alloteratura  . Alloteratura mesembrina Kevan & Jin, 1993  was also included. Gorochov (2008) elevated the subgenus to generic rank together with Indoteratura  and questioned the status of Nefateratura mesembrina  because its male genitalia were very similar to those of the genus Decma  . Xiphidiopsis bifurcata  is allied to the type species owing to: the unpaired projection of male 10th abdominal tergite, the elongate male cerci ( Figs. 69–74 View Figure ); paired bands of the vertex and pronotum ( Figs. 66, 67 View Figure ); the strongly projecting and sclerotized male genitalia ( Figs. 69–74 View Figure ); and they all from southern Xizang.

Type locality and preservation: Medog County, Xizang province  ; type specimens are kept in SEMCAS.
