Notosacantha marginalis ( Gressitt, 1942) 

( Fig. 35View FIGURES 32 – 36. 32)

Hoplionota marginalis Gressitt, 1942: 1  ; Chen et al., 1986: 426 (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 ( LMNH) and one paratype ( USNM) form the same locality but collected on ‘ Apr. 20 ’.

Type material examined. Holotype, glued: ‘Kwangtung, S. China. | Kau-lin San, 700–900 | M. Lien-pʼing Distr. | April 18, 1940 J. L. | Gressitt and F. K. To.

Current status. Synonym of Notosacantha sauteri (Spaeth, 1914)  .

Remarks. According to Gressitt (1942) paratype should be deposited in USNM. However, Staines & Staines (1997) do not list any specimen in that collection and the paratype was in fact deposited also in LMNH. The species was synonymized with N. sauteri  by Chen et al. (1986) and we confirm the synonymy as there are only minor morphological differences which are subject of intraspecific variability.
