Type data: Holotype, female, Liujing town, 60 km South of Beiliu County (22 ° 71 ’N, 110 ° 33 ’E), Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China, 27 -Jan.- 2006, from Glochidion lanceolarium (Roxb.) Voigt   ( Euphorbiaceae   ), collected by De-Wei LI and Guo-Ying SHI. Paratypes, 8 females, with the same data as holotype.
