Material examined. 13, China: Yunnan Prov., Mengla, Yaoqu, 800m, 16 xii 1999, coll. Qin Daozheng; 13, China: Yunnan Prov., Mengla, Bubeng, 700m, 15 xii 1999, coll. Qin Daozheng.

Distribution: China (Guizhou, Yunnan).

Remarks. This species is very similar to K. vana Dworakowska, 1981  in its small body size, rudimentary anal tube appendage, shape of the pygofer dorsal appendage, paramere and connective, and the structure of the aedeagus. All these characters distinguish the two species from other Kapsa  . Also, K. acuminata  has much longer abdominal apodemes and the subgenital plate slightly produced medially in lateral view, differing from other Kapsa  . Thus, placement of these two species in Kapsa  may be incorrect.
