Neodownesia rubra Gressitt, 1953 

( Fig. 18View FIGURES 12 – 19. 12)

Neodownesia rubra Gressitt, 1953a: 122  .

Type locality. China, Fujian prov., Shaowu Co., Dazhulan, approx. 27°41.7′N, 117°39.0′E, 1000 m a.s.l.

Original type series. Holotype ( LMNH) and unspecified number of paratypes ( LMNH, CAS, and coll. E. Uhmann) with same locality data but collected on 3rd May 1942.

Type material examined. Holotype, glued: ‘Fukien, S. China | ShaoWu, TaChuFung | KwaYiaLiao | VI-10-42 [hw] T. C. Maa [w, p, cb] || L-110 [w, t, cb] || HOLOTYPE | NEODOWNESIA  [hw] | MAAI [hw] | J.L.Gressitt [r, p + hw by Gressitt, cb] || NEODOWNESIA  | MAAI | GRESS. | J.L.G. Det.1950 [w, hw by Gressitt, cb] || En- 289753 | [Data Matrix barcode] SYS [w. p, cb]’.

Current status. Valid species (see Sekerka 2015).

Remarks. Gressitt (1953a) stated in the original description ‘Ta-Chu-Lan’ as the type locality while on the label is ‘Ta-Chu-Fung’ but both actually refer to the same place, known as Dazhulan. Gressitt also mentioned that paratypes were deposited also in LMNH and in the collection of E. Uhmann (nowadays in SDEI). We did not find any additional specimen of this species in LMNH. Gaedike & Döbler (1971) published a catalogue of hispinae types deposited in SDEI collections but W. rubra  is not mentioned in the publication.

The species was recently transfered from Gonophorini  to Bothryonopini and its status was clarified ( Sekerka, 2015).
