Kakuna lii sp. nov.

( Figs 1–11 View FIGURES 1 – 11 )

Description. Body length (from apex of vertex to tip of forewings): male 5.50–5.60 mm (N = 11); female 6.20–6.70 mm (N = 21).

Coloration. General color brown. Ocelli reddish brown, eyes black brown. Antennae with apex of basal segment and base of second segment, fuscous. Rostrum with apex fuscous. Forewing ( Fig. 3 View FIGURES 1 – 11 ) yellowish brown, with a large, longitudinal, fuscous marking from base of costal area to apex in male, apex of I A blackish brown. Legs brown, except apex of digitus fuscous. Abdomen fuscous. Body color of female yellowish brown. Forewing with a brown marking between R 2 +M 1 and Cu 1 +M 2. Dorsal areas of abdomen and ovipositor fuscous.

Head and thorax. Vertex including eyes narrower than pronotum (0.81: 1). Vertex shorter in middle line than wide at base (0.83: 1), broad at apex narrower than at base (0.83: 1). Frons 2.4 times longer in middle line than widest part, wider at base than at apex (1.05: 1). Antennae with basal segment 1.75 times as long as broad, shorter than second segment (0.44: 1). Pronotum as long as vertex. Mesonotum 1.41 times as long as vertex and pronotum together in middle line. Forewing longer in middle line than broad at widest part (2.93: 1). Posttibial spur with about 27 teeth along hind margin. Basal segment of digitus longer than second and third combined (1.70: 1).

Male genitalia. Anal segment of male ( Fig. 5 View FIGURES 1 – 11 ), ventral margin without process. Pygofer in profile ( Fig. 4 View FIGURES 1 – 11 ) with dorsal margin shorter than ventral margin, laterodorsal angle strongly produced caudad, posterior margin slightly concave; in posterior view ( Figs 5, 6 View FIGURES 1 – 11 ), with opening V-like, ventral margin broadly concave. Suspensorium ( Figs 7, 8 View FIGURES 1 – 11 ) ring-like, basal stalk shorter in middle line than total length (0.19: 1), shorter in middle line than broad at base (0.38: 1). Aedeagus ( Figs 8, 9 View FIGURES 1 – 11 ) tubular, slightly broadly curving dorsad, expanding apically, dorsal margin having six spine-like processes. Diaphragm ( Fig. 6 View FIGURES 1 – 11 ) with dorsal margin broadly produced dorsad, median part with two spine-like processes, which slightly curving laterad apcially. Genital styles ( Figs 10, 11 View FIGURES 1 – 11 ) slender, long, slightly broad at base, narrowing apically, in posterior view ( Fig. 11 View FIGURES 1 – 11 ), apex beak shaped.

Host plant. Bamboo [ Qiongzhuea communis Hsueh & Yi and Sinobambusa kunishii (Hayata) Naki ].

Distribution. Southwest China (Guizhou: Jiangkou, Suiyang, Daozhen) ( Fig. 35 View FIGURE 35 ).

Remarks. This new species is very closely related to K. kuwayamai but differs in: i) dorsal margin of diaphragm of male with processes curved latrad (in the latter, apex of processes straight); ii) aedeagus relatived slender, slightly curved medianally, apex with spinous processes at dorsal margin (in the latter, aedeagus relatively thick, straight, apex with spinous processes both at dorsal and ventral margin); iii) basal stalk of suspensorium short, about fifth of total length (in the latter, basal stalk of suspensorium long, about half of total length).

Etymology. This species name is derived from the last name of one of the collectors of the species, Prof. Z.-Z. Li.
