( Fig. 27View FIGURES 26 – 31. 26)

Dactylispa (s. str.) setifera setifera (Chapuis, 1877)  : Chen et al., 1986: 277 ( D. balyi sensu Gressitt 1938  ex parte = D. setifera setifera  ).

Material examined. One specimen, pinned: ‘Kwangsi,South China. | Nanning, | Yih-ning District. | August 2-3, 1934. | Ernest R. Tinkham [w, p, cb] || PARATYPE [y, p, cb] || Sun Yat-sen University,83 cabinet, 4th box [w, hw in Chinese, cb] || DACTYLISPA  [hw] | BALYI [hw] | (GESTRO) [hw] | J.L.Gressitt-Det.19[p]50[hw] [w, p, cb] || Dactylispa setifera  [hw] | zeae Chen  et Tʼan [hw] | n. ssp [hw] | det.

Current status. Unpublished taxon name conspecific with D. spinosa (Weber, 1801)  .

Remarks. These specimens were labelled by Juanjie Tʼan as new new subspecies of D. setifera (Chapuis, 1877)  , however, this name was never published according to our knowledge. Both specimens were published by Gressitt (1950) as D. balyi (Gestro, 1890)  afterwards attributed to D. setifera setifera (Chapuis, 1877)  by Chen et. al (1986). However, it is questionable whether the Chinese population is conspecific with the type of D. setifera  described from Moluccas (Bacan Is.). Würmli (1976a) synonymized D. balyi (Gestro, 1890)  with D. spinosa (Weber, 1801)  . Although we have not studied types of these species, Chinese specimens identified as D. balyi  or D. setifera  are conspecific with historical specimens identified as D. spinosa  deposited in various collections. Despite the name was not published, we decided to include it in the list to avoid any further misinterpretation.
