Amaurodera smetanai PACE, 1992  

Amaurodera yaoana PACE, 1992: 257   f.; syn. nov.

Material examined: China: 1 , Yunnan, Xishuanbanna, 60 km N Jinghong, Guanping env., 1000 m, 19.–27.I.2003, leg. Murzin (cAss)   ; 2 exs., Hainan, Limu Shan , forest above forest administration centre, 19°11'N, 109°44–45'E   ,

650–900 m, secondary forest, sifted from moist leaf litter along trail, 6.V.2011, leg. Fikáček ( NMP, cAss)   .

Comment: Amaurodera smetanai   was originally described from East Nepal and subsequently twice recorded from the Chinese island Hainan ( ASSING 2003; PACE 2012; YAN & LI 2015).

The original description of A. yaoana   is based on three females from two localities in Thailand. Based on the distinctive shape of the spermatheca, these specimens are conspecific with the widespread A. smetanai   . The description of A. smetanai   was published in March, whereas the exact date of the publication of the description of A. yaoana   is not indicated, so that the latter is the junior synonym.

The known distribution of A. smetanai   now ranges from Nepal across southern China (Yunnan, Hainan) to Thailand.
