Cassida spaethiana Gressitt, 1945 

( Fig. 9View FIGURES 4 – 11. 4)

Taiwania spaethi Gressitt, 1942: 2  (secondary junior homonym of C. spaethi Weise, 1900  ). Cassida (Taiwania) spaethiana Gressitt, 1945: 147  (new substitute name).

Type locality. China, Guangdong prov., Lianping Co., Jiulianshan Mt., approx. 24°27.3′N, 114°33.8′E, 400–500 m a.s.l.

Original type series. Holotype ( LNHM) and one paratype with unspecified depository.

Type material examined. Holotype, pinned: ‘Kwangtung, S. China. | Kau-lin Shan, Lien- | pʼing Distr., April | 16, 1940, J. L. | Gressitt & F. K. To. [w, p, cb] || HOLOTYPE | TAIWANI [hw] | SPAETHI [hw] | J.L.Gressitt [r, p + hw by Gressitt, cb] || CASSIDA  | ( TAIWANIA  ) | SPAETHIANA | Gress. | J.L.G. Det 1950 [w, hw by Gressitt, cb] || En-289741 | [Data Matrix barcode] SYS [w. p, cb]’; paratype, pinned: ‘Kwangtung, S. China. | Kau-lin Shan, Lien- | pʼing Distr., April | 16, 1940, J. L. | Gressitt & F. K. To. [w, p, cb] || PARATYPE | TAIWANI [hw] | SPAETHI [hw] | J.L.Gressitt [y, p, cb]’

Current status. Valid species.

Remarks. The species was originally described in Taiwania Spaeth, 1913  which was, however, at that time already considered as a subgenus of Cassida Linnaeus, 1758  and the name became secondary junior homonym of C. spaethi Weise, 1900  . Gressitt (1945) proposed a new substitute name to replace his C. spaethi  . The paratype specimen is also deposited in LNHM.
