Remarks. C. (s. str.) rubrimaculata  is close to C. (s. str.) tsinensis  , based on the general body form and color patterns, as well as the similar form of two ventral depressions on the apex of the median lobe, but the former species has setose inner and intero-lateral margins along the depressions ( Fig. 10 View Figure F), while the latter has setae only along the outer margins of the depressions ( Fig. 11 View Figure F). Also, C. tsinensis  has a red spot on the frons, which differs from other species.
