Type material. Holotype: ♂ ( IZCAS-AR33980), LONGPU VILLAGe (28.53412°N, 98.451050°E, eLeV. 2873 M), CAWARONG TOWNSHIP, ZAYü, Tibet, China, 14 SePTeMBeR 2014, J. LIU LeGGoogleMaps  . Paratypes: 1♀ 1♂ ( IZCAS-AR33981, 33982), SAMe DATA AS HOLOTYPe  .

Etymology. THe SPeCIFIC NAMe IS DeRIVeD FROM THe PINYIN "LONGPU" AND ReFeRS TO ITS TYPe LOCALITY, LONGPU VILLAGe; ADjeCTIVe.

Diagnosis. THe MALeS ARe SIMILAR TO H. exilis  BUTAbout BUT CAN eASILY Be DISTINGUISHeD FROM H. exilis  BY THe PALP SHORTeR THAN THe TARSUS; THe TARSUS AS LONG AS THe TIBIA ( TARSUS AS TWICe LONG AS THe TIBIA IN H. exilis  ), TWO BRANCHeS OF CONDUCTOR THAT DIFFeR IN LeNGTH BUTAbout BUT IN H. exilis  , TWO BRANCHeS BeING OF THe SAMe LeNGTH ( FIGS 9B View Figure , 17B View Figure ); MeDIAN APOPHYSIS LONGeR THAN IT IN H. exilis  ( FIGS 9C View Figure , 17C View Figure ). THe FeMALeS CAN Be eASILY DISTINGUISHeD FROM H. exilis  BY POSTeRIOR ePIGYNAL SCLeRITe BROAD, THe HeIGHT OF IT IS ABOUT ½ THe HeIGHT OF ePIGYNe BUTAbout BUT IS TWICe AS ITS IN H. exilis  ( FIGS 10A View Figure , 18A View Figure ); THe DISTANCe BeTWeeN SPeRMATHeCAe IS TWICe AS LONG AS THe DIAMeTeR OF SPeRMATHeCA WHILe IN H. exilis  , THe DISTANCe IS SUBeqUAL TO THe DIAMeTeR ( FIGS 10B View Figure , 18B View Figure ).
