( Fig. 26View FIGURES 26 – 31. 26)

Dactylispa planispina Gressitt, 1950: 125  .

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), unspecified number of paratypes collected from 1st November through 16th December 1942 and on 14th May 1942 in the same locality as the holotype and additional paratypes from Fujian ( LMNH, CAS, USNM, coll. T. C. Maa). Depositories of particular specimens unspecified.

Type material examined. Holotype, pinned: ‘Fukien, S.

[hw] | J.L.Gressitt-Det.19[p]50[hw] [w, p + hw by Gressitt, cb]’.

Current status. Valid species in the subgenus Platypriella Chen & Tan, 1961.

Remarks. Gressitt (1950) stated that the holotype came from ‘Ta-chu-lan’ and was collected on ‘ May 5, 1945 ’ while the abovementioned specimen was collected on 23–28 November 1942 in ‘TaChuFung’. Both locality names refer to the same place known as Dazhulan.

We searched other collections which should hold part of the type series ( Staines & Staines 1997, Vincet Lee pers. comm. 2015) and neither contains other specimens labelled as holotype. Therefore we consider the LMNH specimen as holotype and the inconsistency of dates is probably result of wrong transcription.
