Dactylispa (s. str.) kaulina Gressitt, 1950 

( Fig. 22View FIGURES 20 – 25. 20)

Dactylispa kaulina Gressitt, 1950: 118  ; Uhmann, 1964: 473 (synonymy).

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 ( LMHN) and unstated number of paratypes from Ta-chu-lan, Bohea Hills, Kienyang, and Wu-i (all in Fujian) deposited in LMNH, USNM, CAS, and coll. T.C. Maa).

Type material examined. Holotype, glued: ‘Kwangtung, S. China | Kau-lin Shan, 700-900 | M. Lien pʼing Dist. | April 22, 1940 J. L. | Gressitt and F. K. To.

Current status. Synonym of Dactylispa (s. str.) issikii Chûjô 1938  .

Remarks. Gressitt (1950) compared this species to D. (Triplispa) pungens (Boheman, 1858)  and Uhmann (1964) synonymized it with D. (s. str.) issikii Chûjô 1938  . Dactylispa issiki  is very characteristic as it is the only Chinese species in the nominotypical subgenus having anterior spines in triplets. The holotype of D. kaulina  has positions and proportions of thoracic and elytral spines identical to D. issikii  thus the synonymy is in our opinion correct.
