Dactylispa (s. str.) superspinosa Gressitt & Kimoto, 1963 

Dactylispa superspinosa Gressitt & Kimoto, 1963: 933  .

Type locality. China, Hubei prov., Lichuan Co., WangJiaYing to Shuishaba. Original type series. Holotype ( USNM) and three paratypes ( BPBM, CAS, LMNH) from ‘Liung-ho-keu 9.IX.1948 ’ and ‘Sui-sa-pa, 15.IX.1948 ’.

Type material examined. Paratype specimen not found in LMNH.

Current status. Valid species.

Remarks. According to the original description one paratype was deposited in LMNH but we did not locate the specimen. The type locality refers to Shuishaba village situated approximately in the middle of the Shuishaba valley in the Lichuan district and the specimen was collected during the expedition lead by Gressitt to explore Dawn-Redwood ( Metasequoia glyptostroboides Hu & W.C.Cheng  ), for details see Gressitt (1953b). Chu & Cooper (1950) published a rough map of the Shuishaba valley (as Shui-hsa-pa), however, the coordinates seems to be quite off the true place hence are not accepted here. Exact geographic position of the type locality is unknown to us.
