Diagnosis.

This new species is distinguished by the following characters: vertex with four black brown bands along lateral margins and median carina (Fig. 7View Figures 5–16); mesonotum with each other one dark spot between lateral and sublateral carinae (Fig. 7View Figures 5–16); genital styles with irregular triangular prominence near dorsal margin at base of capitulum (Fig. 12aView Figures 5–16); dorsal lobe of phallobase with one small claviform process in base (Fig. 15bView Figures 5–16), and convex protrusion near middle (Fig. 15cView Figures 5–16) and apical part with a duckbill-like process (Fig. 15dView Figures 5–16), lateral margin with one long hooked process (Fig. 15eView Figures 5–16) on each side; ventral lobe with apical part mushroom-like in ventral view (Fig. 16hView Figures 5–16); aedeagus with one short hooked process near apical 1/3 in lateral view, directing to cephalad (Fig. 15iView Figures 5–16).

Description.

Body length (from apex of vertex to tip of forewings): male 7.80-8.31 mm (N = 11), female 8.80-9.30 mm (N = 7); forewing: male 6.50-7.80 mm (N = 11), female 7.60-9.30 mm (N = 7).

Coloration. General colour yellow-green (Fig. 5View Figures 5–16). Vertex (Fig. 7View Figures 5–16) yellow-brown, with four black brown bands along lateral margins and median carina, with pale yellow median carina. Frons and clypeus (Fig. 9View Figures 5–16) ochreous. Compound eyes black brown, ocelli pale ochreous (Fig. 8View Figures 5–16). Pronotum and mesonotum (Fig. 7View Figures 5–16) yellow brown, mesonotum with pair of dark spots between lateral carinae and sublateral carinae. Male forewings (Fig. 6View Figures 5–16) yellow green, with diffusely brownish irregular speckles near middle of MP vein and CuA vein, and the base of ScP+RP vein; female forewings brown. Hindwings transparent. Abdomen pale yellow-green, suffused with black-brown near middle line. Male genitalia pale yellow green. Female genitalia brown black. Tip of spines on hind tibiae and tarsi black.

Head and thorax. Head (Fig. 7View Figures 5–16) including eyes distinctly narrower than pronotum (0.77: 1.00). Vertex (Fig. 7View Figures 5–16) slightly shorter in middle than the width (0.75: 1.00). Frons (Fig. 9View Figures 5–16) longer in middle than the maximum width (1.14: 1.00), with median carina nearly reaching frontoclypeal suture, sublateral carinae obscure, nearly reaching the level of middle of frons. Pronotum (Fig. 7View Figures 5–16) shorter in midline than the width (0.31: 1.00). Mesonotum (Fig. 7View Figures 5–16) shorter in midline than its width (0.43: 1.00); the basal part forked, scutellum sunken. Forewings (Fig. 10View Figures 5–16) longer than width (2.33: 1.00), MP two branches near basal 1/3, MP1 dividing two branches in distal 1/4, MP2 not forked, CuA forked into two branches in middle of forewing, Pcu and A1 uniting slightly after MP bifurcation. Hindwings (Fig. 11View Figures 5–16) with one transverse vein between CuP and Pcu near apical part, with transverse vein between Pcu+A11 and A12 near basal 1/3. Spinal formula of hind leg (2)7/6, 7/2.

Male genitalia. Anal tube (Fig. 13View Figures 5–16) longer than its widest breath (2.90: 1.00) in dorsal view, anterior margin arched convex, lateral margins nearly parallel at apical 2/3, the basal 1/3 part broader than apical part. Anal style (Fig. 13View Figures 5–16) small, extremely short and thin, located in basal 2/5 of anal tube, not surpassing the end of the anal pore. Pygofer (Fig. 12View Figures 5–16) with dorsal and ventral margin paralleled in lateral view. Genital styles (Fig. 12View Figures 5–16) with irregular triangular prominence at base of capitulum (Fig. 12aView Figures 5–16). Capitulum of genital styles irregularly keen-edged triangular, neck very long and obvious (Fig. 14View Figures 5–16). Phallobase (Figs 15View Figures 5–16, 16View Figures 5–16) with dorsal margin of dorsal lobe with one small claviform process in base (Fig. 15bView Figures 5–16) in lateral view, convex protrusion near middle (Fig. 15cView Figures 5–16) and apical part with duckbill-like process (Fig. 15dView Figures 5–16), lateral margin with one long hooked process on each side (Figs 15eView Figures 5–16, 16eView Figures 5–16), surpassing middle of phallobase, directing to cephalad, and lateral margin waved obviously, with one lobe-like process (Fig. 15fView Figures 5–16); lateral lobe splitting into two branches, slightly shorter than the dorsal lobe, with unobvious small lamina-like process (Fig. 15gView Figures 5–16); ventral lobe slightly shorter than lateral lobe in lateral view, stout, with apical part mushroom-like (Fig. 16hView Figures 5–16) in ventral view. Aedeagus (Figs 15View Figures 5–16, 16View Figures 5–16) with one short hooked process on each side (Figs 15iView Figures 5–16, 16iView Figures 5–16) near apical 1/3 in lateral view, directing to cephalad.

Female genitalia. Anal tube (Figs 17View Figures 17–27, 20View Figures 17–27) longer in middle line than the width (3.15: 1.00), the basal 1/3 part broader, inclined to ventral margin in lateral view (Fig. 21View Figures 17–27). Anal style (Figs 20View Figures 17–27, 21View Figures 17–27) long and stout, located in basal 1/6 of anal tube, surpassing the end of anal pore. Anterior connective lamina of gonapophyses VIII (Figs 18View Figures 17–27, 22View Figures 17–27) extremely long saw-like, with a row of teeth in inner lateral margin (Fig. 22View Figures 17–27: tl). Posterior connective lamina of gonapophyses IX (Figs 23View Figures 17–27, 24View Figures 17–27) relatively broad in dorsal view, with lateral field and sublateral field unobvious, membranous, median field membranous, with deep sunken (Fig. 23View Figures 17–27: mf), apical part of ventroposterior lobes with long flagelliform process (Fig. 23View Figures 17–27: fp). Gonoplacs (Fig. 25View Figures 17–27) irregularly triangular, tapering, apical part membranous, thin tuber in latera view; fused dorsally to form a sheath surrounding the anterior connective lamina of gonapophyses VIII (Fig. 26View Figures 17–27). Hind margin of sternite VII with distinctly triangular prominence in middle area in ventral view (Fig. 19View Figures 17–27), inner margin with membranous process (Fig. 27View Figures 17–27).

Distribution.

China (Hainan).

Etymology.

The species name is derived from a combination of the prefix “bi-” and Latin noun “punctata”, suggesting the paired dark spots of mesonotum.

Host plant.

Unknown.
