( Figs 59–61View FIGURES 56–67)

Sinotilla belokobylskiji Lelej, 1995b: 22  , ♀; 2005: 54, ♀.

Diagnosis. FEMALE. This species has a distinct scutellar scale, T2 medially depressed with large coarse confluent punctures, T2 with a large spot of dense whitish setae medially, S2–3 with bands of whitish setae, and the metasoma black. Body length 4.5–11 mm. MALE. Unknown.

Distribution. Thailand * (Chiang Mai, Phetchaburi, Songkhla) and Vietnam.

Remarks. The type of S. belokobylskiji  from Vietnam is diagnosed as having a rather broad scutellar scale (Lelej 1995; Okayasu 2017), unlike the specimens treated here. In other species, however, like Mickelomyrme athalia  , scutellar scale width seems to vary intraspecifically. We hypothesize that the specimens listed above belong to S. belokobylskiji  , but future analyses may recognize them as a distinct species.
