examined. Holotype ♂ ( IZCAS): China, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Hechi Prefecture, Dahua County, Jiangnan Township, Huangniu Cave, 23°55.120'N, 107°37.479'E, 8.III.2007, J. Liu and Y. Lin leg. Paratypes: 1♂ and 6♀ ( IZCAS), same data as holotype.
Other material examined.
4♂ and 5♀ (molecular vouchers, IZCAS) from the type locality, 175 m, 10.IV.2017, Z. Chen leg.
This species resembles P. liangxi (see Figs 9-11, Zhu and Chen 2002: 82, figs 1-7 and Chen and Zhu 2009: 1709, figure 3E, M–N) but can be differentiated by following characters: embolus straight (arrow 1 in Figure 16D) (embolus curved in P. liangxi ), bulb protruding ventro-subdistally (arrow 2 in Figure 16D) (bulb not protruding ventro-subdistally in P. liangxi ), and bulb slightly curved dorso-medially (arrow 3 in Figure 16D) (bulb not curved dorso-medially in P. liangxi ).
Male palp: Cymbial apophysis finger-like (Figs 15A, 16C); spiral ridge pale brown (Figure 16B), El/Bl ratio 1.15-1.21 (n = 4, mean: 1.18, Suppl. material 1: Figure S7), Esl/El ratio 0.48-0.49 (n = 4, mean: 0.48, Suppl. material 1: Figure S7), Female endogyne: insemination duct wider than receptacle, receptacle comma-shaped (Figure 17C). For more detailed descriptions, see Lin and Li (2010).
This species is transferred to Pinelema , because it shares similar morphological characters with P. bailongensis , such as the long, tube-like embolus (see Figs 15 A–D, 16 C–D and Lin and Li 2010: figure 14 D–F), the presence of a distinct cymbial apophysis in male palp prolaterally (see Figs 15A, 16C and Lin and Li 2010: figure 14E), and the U-shaped and medially strongly curved receptacle (see Figure 17C and Lin and Li 2010: figure 15F).
