Type material.

Holotype ♂, Beijing: Huairou, Labagou (40°32'N, 116°63'E), 29.VII.2009, Yan Li. Paratype 1 ♂, same data as holotype. Type specimens are stored in 75% ethanol.

Distribution.

Known only from the type locality in Beijing.

Remarks.

This new species is similar to Chrysotimus dorsalis  Yang, but may be separated from the latter by the single row of v on the hind tibia, and slender surstylus. In Chrysotimus dorsalis  , the hind tibia lacks row of v, and the surstylus is wide ( Yang 2001).

Etymology.

The specific epithet derives from the type locality Huairou (Beijing).
