Brownish yellow. Face with frontoclypeus along fore border brown, antennal pit black.

External features as in generic description.

Male genitalia with pygofer side elongate, strongly dentate at ventro­caudal margin; several macrosetae posteriorly. Subgenital plate long, lateral margin slightly incurved at mid­length, with a uniseriate row of macrosetae ventrally from base to apex, apical margin rounded. Connective Y­shaped, shaft robust slight longer than arms. Style with apical process moderately long, lateral lobe well developed. Aedeagus with basal apodeme short; shaft long and thin, directed dorsad with several small denticles on ventral margin, phallotreme apical.

Measurement Male 6.5mm and female 6.6–6.8mm long (including tegmen).

Material examined

Holotype, ♂, China: Guizhou province, Leigongshan Mountian, 3.VII.1997, Zhang Yazhou . Paratype, 1♂, 3♀ as to Holotype; 1♂, 6♀, Guizhou province, Fanjingshan Mountian, Huguosi 1.VIII. 2001, Sunqiang (all above in EM) .


This species is similar to B. fopingensis , but can be separated from the latter by having the pygofer side strongly dentate ventro­caudally and the style with the lateral lobe well developed.

Etymology This new species is named for the strongly dentate ventro­caudal margin of the male pygofer.
