Diagnosis and description.

Yin et al. 2011: 471; Figs 15A, 16. Measurements: BL 3.10, HL 0.63, HW 0.59, PL 0.63, PW 0.62, EL 0.80, EW 1.14, AL 1.04, AW 1.12; eyes each composed of about 40 facets. Aedeagus length 0.51, with slightly asymmetrical median lobe (Figs 16 J–L).


Southwest China: Yunnan.

Notes. This species was originally described based on a single male (Type-locality: Jizushan Mountain, ca. 25°57'37"N, 100°22'44"E, alt. 2400 m). The aedeagus of the holotype was unfortunately lost. Here we record a second male specimen of this species from Tengchong, Gaoligong Mountain, about 200 km southwest from the type locality, and have illustrated its aedeagus.
