Dactylispa (s. str.) mauliki Gressitt, 1950 

( Fig. 23View FIGURES 20 – 25. 20)

Dactylispa mauliki Gressitt, 1950: 123  .

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 ( LMNH), unstated number of paratypes ( LMNH, CAS, USNM) from the same locality as the holotype collected on 16–21 April 1940.

Type material examined. Holotype, glued: ‘Kwangtung, S. China | Kau-lin Shan, 700–900 | M. Lien pʼing Dist. | April 18, 1940 J. L. | Gressitt and F. K. To. [w, p, cb] || M-305 [w, hw, cb] || HOLOTYPE | DACTYLISPA  [hw] | MAULIKI [hw] | J.L.Gressitt [r, p + hw by Gressitt, cb] || [vernacular name in Chinese, hw] | Dactylispa  [hw] | mauliki Gressitt  [hw] | det. Li-Zhong Hua [in Chinese, p] 1982 [hw] [w, p, cb] || En-289758 | [Data Matrix barcode] SYS [w. p, cb]’.

Current status. Valid species in the nominotypical subgenus.

Remarks. Gressitt (1950) mentioned that the holotype was collected on 19th April 1940, however, it has 18th April on the label. According to the online database of CAS types and catalogue of USNM types ( Staines & Staines 1997) these collections contain only paratypes of this species thus the LMNH specimen is considered as holotype and the inconsistency in dates is result of an error. Gressitt also mentioned that paratype (s) were deposited in LMNH, however, we did not find any such specimen.
