( Fig. 34View FIGURES 32 – 36. 32)

Hoplionota oblongopunctata Gressitt, 1938d: 573  .

Type locality. China, Hainan Prov., Yaxian Co., Sanyagang, approx. 18°20′N, 109°05′E, 10 m a.s.l.

Original type series. Holotype ( LNHM) and one paratype (coll. Gressitt) with the same locality data.

Type material examined. Holotype, pinned: ‘ Hainan Is.,S. China. | Sam-ah-kong, | Yai-hsien (District) | January 24–26, 1935. | F. K. To [w, p, cb] || 81 [w, t, cb] || M-67 [w, hw, cb] || HOLOTYPE | HOPLIONOTA  [hw] | OBLONGOPUN- [hw] | CTATA [hw] | J.L.Gressitt [r, p + hw by Gressitt, cb] || [vernacular name in Chinese, hw] | Notosacantha  [hw] | oblongopunctata (Gress.)  [hw] | det.

Current status. Valid species.

Remarks. Notosacantha oblongopunctata  is at first glance most similar to N. siamensis ( Spaeth, 1933)  with nearly identical constitution of dorsal costae and falls next to it in Spaethʼs (1933) key. It differs by elytral costae more elevated, stout and almost rectangular body (distinctly longer than wide in N. siamensis  ), and distinctly coarser pores, particularly those on inner half of the explanate margin of the elytra.
