Host plants. Elatostema   sp. ( David, 1993), unidentified plant.

Distribution. China, India ( David, 1993).

Material examined. China, Hainan, Wuzhi Mt., 5 puparium on 5 slides, on unidentified plant, 12.v. 2011, J. R. Wang.

Remarks. This species was first described under the genus Martiniella Jesudasan & David   , and then was synonymised with the genus Aleuroclava Singh   by Martin (1999). Dorsum with two pairs of long setae- cephalic and first abdominal setae acute 430 µm and 400 µm respectively. Dorsum with numerous of small pores and granules. This species resembles A. ayyari   in shape, size and by the indication of thoracic tracheal pores, but differs from it by the presence of granules on the dorsum. It is also close to A. canangae (Corbett)   in having granulated subdorsum but differs by absence of cephalothorax and median tubercles on abdominal segments.
