Holotype ♂, Hubei: Shennongjia, Dalongtan pound (31°75'N, 110°67'E), 30.VI.2009, Qifei Liu. Paratypes, 12♂♂, same data as holotype; 5♂♂, Hubei: Shennongjia, Dapingqian (31°75'N, 110°67'E), 7. VII. 2009, Qifei Liu. Type specimens are stored in 75% ethanol.
Known only from the type locality in Hubei.
This new species is similar to Chrysotimus acutatus Wang, Yang & Grootaert, but may be separated from the latter by 2 ad on hind tibia, and and by the long, wide, trifurcated lateral process on epandrium. In Chrysotimus acutatus , the hind tibia has 1 ad, and the lateral epandrial process is short and bifurcated ( Wang et al. 2005).
The specific epithet is derived from the type locality Dalong (Hubei).
