Types. Holotype: ♂ (IZCAS-Ar33972), Deda Village (30.282050°N, 99.486217°E, elev. 4086 ± 3 m), Deda Township , Batang County, Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Garzê, Sichuan, China, 15 August 2014, Y. Li legGoogleMaps  . Paratype: 1♂ (IZCAS-Ar33973), same data as holotypeGoogleMaps  .

Etymology. The specific name is derived from the pinyin "Deda", referring to its type locality, Deda Village; adjective.

Diagnosis. The males are similar to H. falcatus  but can be easily distinguished by cymbial furrow shorter, length is about ½ of the length of H. falcatus  ( Fig. 8C View Figure , Xu & Li 2006: fig. 7); and one patella apophysis vs.two in H. falcatus  ( Figs 7B–C View Figure , Xu & Li 2006: fig. 7).

Description. Male (holotype): Total length 10.58. Carapace 5.13 long, 3.21 wide. Abdomen 5.45 long, 3.40 wide. Eye sizes and interdistances: AME 0.11, ALE 0.15, PME 0.13, PLE 0.16; AME–AME 0.16, AME–ALE 0.06, AME–PME 0.19, ALE–PLE 0, PME–PME 0.19, PME–PLE 0.22. Leg measurements: I 17.57 (4.49, 5.71, 4.49, 2.88); II 15.77 (4.25, 4.75, 4.17, 2.60); III 13.59 (3.75, 3.75, 3.85, 2.24); IV 18.22 (4.49, 5.72, 5.13, 2.88). Palp: patellar apophysis short, about ½ the width of patella, finger-shaped and bent in the end; RTA slice-shaped, LTA short, approximately ¼ the length of RTA; cymbial furrow short, subequal to ¼ the length of cymbium; embolus beginning at 8 o’clock position; the long branch of conductor with a small basal lamella and the short branch of conductor pointed; median apophysis slice-shaped, the width is about ½ the length ( Figs 7A–C View Figure ).

Variation: Total length varies from 8.50 to 10.58.
