Callispa angusta Gressitt, 1950 

( Fig. 2View FIGURES 1 – 3. 1)

Callispa angusta Gressitt, 1950: 67  .

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. Described only from the holotype ( LMNH).

Material examined. One specimen, glued and erroneously labeled as holotype: ‘Fukien, S. China | ShaWu, TaChuFung | Taodai | V-12 -[hw]4[p]2[hw] T. C. Maa [w, p, cb] || HOLOTYPE | CALLISPA  [hw] | ANGUSTA [hw] | J.L.Gressitt [r, p + hw by Gressitt, cb] || Callispa  | angusta  | Gr. [w, hw by Gressitt, s] || En-289757 | [Data Matrix barcode] SYS [w. p, cb]’.

Current status. Valid species.

Remarks. Gressitt (1950) described this species based on a single specimen collected in ‘Kwa-in-han’ on ‘ 3 May, 1942’ and stated that the holotype is in LMNH, however, the abovementioned specimen does not agree with the data. We located and studied photographs of the true holotype specimen, agreeing with the original description and locality data, in CAS. As Gressitt mentioned only a single specimen, the one in LMNH is excluded from the type series.
