Diagnosis and discussion: This species generally relates to the previous one, but male cerci without any protuberances ( Fig. 11 View Figure ); subgenital plate of male narrower; subgenital plate of female discoid distally, central incision of hind margin indistinct ( Fig. 12 View Figure ). Male genitalia similar to G. cheni  ( Fig. 13 View Figure ). Based on the concolourous body, the paired processes of male 10th abdominal tergite and the morphology of the male genitalia, we also transfer this species to Grigoriora  .

Type locality and preservation: Shimenkan village , Weining County, Guizhou province  ; type specimens are kept in USNM.
