Diagnosis and discussion: The description of this species was precise. Bey-Bienko (1955) treated it a Xiphidiopsis  . Gorochov (1993, 1998) did not include this species in his revisionary work on the tribe Meconematini  . Liu (with Zhang, 2000) transferred it to Eoxizicus  . In the present view, this species is more generally similar to Xiphidiopsis  spp. owing to its uniform body colour, the genital segments ( Fig. 8 View Figure ) similar to Eoxizicus  . However, the pronotal stripes are absent, and genitalia of male bear a conical tubercle ( Fig. 10 View Figure ) different from that of Eoxizicus  species. This new combination seems to reconcile the conflict. The male genitalia of this species are not strongly sclerotized dorsally and the male subgenital plate is convex and not bifurcated apically ( Fig. 9 View Figure ). Considering Grigoriora  contains very different species possibly belonging to different subgenera, we believe this combination is justified.

Type locality and preservation: Kuling town, Jiujiang city, Jiangxi province  ; type specimens are kept in IZCAS.
