Diagnosis. MALeS OF THIS SPeCIeS CAN Be DISTINGUISHeD FROM N. brevipatellatus Z. ZHAO & S. LI  sp. n. BY THe LONG PATeLLAR APOPHYSIS, AS LONG AS THe PATeLLA, WHILe THe PATeLLAR APOPHYSIS OBVIOUSLY SHORT IN N. brevipatellatus Z. ZhaO & S. LI  ( FIGS 1C View Figure , 3C View Figure ), A SHORT CYMBIAL FURROW, ABOUT ½ THe LeNGTH OF CYMBIUM, WHILe IT IS ABOUT ⅓ IN N. brevipatellatus Z. ZhaO & S. LI  sp. n ( FIGS 1C View Figure , 3C View Figure ). FeMALeS OF THIS SPeCIeS CAN Be DISTINGUISHeD FROM N. brevipatellatus Z. ZhaO & S. LI  sp. n. BY THe SPeRMATHeCAL HeADS WHOSe HeIGHT IS LONGTeR THAN THe WIDTH BUT IN N. brevipatellatus Z. ZhaO & S. LI  sp. n., THe WIDTH OF SPeRMATHeCAL HeADS IS LONGeR THAN THe HeIGHT; THe WIDTH OF SPeRMATHeCAL BASeS IS SUBeqUAL TO ½ THe WIDTH OF ANTeRIOR SPeRMATHeCA, BUT ABOUT 1½ AS IN N. brevipatellatus  sp. n.; AND THe DISTANCe BeTWeeN THe MIDDLe PART OF SPeRMATHeCAe IS LeSS THAN ¼ OF THe WIDTH OF SPeRMATHeCAL BASeS, BUT SUBeqUAL TO ½ AS IN N. brevipatellatus Z. ZhaO & S. LI  sp. n. ( FIGS 2B View Figure , 4B View Figure ).
