Diagnosis: The female of this species can be easily distinguished from other Draconarius  by the absence of epigynal teeth, the presence of a distinct, continuous, strongly sclerotized anterior atrial margin, the anteriorly and laterally extending copulatory ducts, and the short spermathecae (Figs 6, 12-13). The male is similar to D. tangi  sp. nov. in having a broad, anteriorly extending conductor and prolaterally originating embolus, but can be distinguished by the small patellar apophysis, the slightly trifurcate conductor, the filiform embolus and the absence of a median apophysis (Figs 9-11).

Description: See Wang (2003). Photos of habitus, eyes, labium and genitalia are provided in this study (Figs 6-15).

Distribution: China (Yunnan: Longling, Longyang, Tengchong) (Fig. 533).
