Etymology: The specific name is derived from one of the type localities, Longling County, Yunnan, China; adjective.

Diagnosis: Males of this new species can be easily recognized by the long, broad patellar apophysis, the bifurcate conductor, the broad, round, simple median apophysis, and the prolaterally originating embolus (Figs 288-289).

Description: Male (holotype). Medium sized Coelotinae  , total length 9.01 (Fig. 293). Dorsal shield of prosoma 5.01 long, 3.36 wide; opisthosoma 4.00 long, 2.50 wide. AME smallest, ALE largest; PME and PLE subequal in size, slightly smaller than ALE ( AME 0.14, ALE 0.19, PME 0.16, PLE 0.17); AME separated from each other and from ALE by about half of AME diameter; PME separated from each other by 2 /3 of their diameter, widely separated from PLE by about 1.5 times PME diameter (AME-AME 0.07, AME-ALE 0.08, PME-PME 0.10, PME-PLE 0.22, AME-PME 0.15) (Fig. 294). Labium longer than wide ( L / W =1.11) (Fig. 295). Promargin of chelicera with 3 teeth, retromargin 2. Palpal patellar apophysis large, with broad base and slender distal end; RTA more than half of tibial length, with blunt distal end; lateral tibial apophysis distinctly separated from RTA; cymbial furrow less than half of cymbial length; conductor short, slightly bifurcate, with a dorsal apophysis and a small basal lamella; median apophysis broad, round, simple (not spoon-shaped); embolus short, filiform, prolateral in origin (Figs 288-292).
