Remarks: The only other species of Davidius   known from S China is D. truncus Chao 1995   , from Fujian, Jiangxi and Zhejiang. According to Chao (1995) the markings of the two species are similar but they can be separated by the shape of the penile organ. In D. truncus   ( Fig. 3g) the vescicle has an angulated rim not present in D. fruhstorferi   , the basal portion of the apical segment is globular not elongate, and the apex of the trumpet-like apical segment is heart-shaped as opposed to round in D. fruhstorferi   ( Fig. 3e). The postgenital plates are distinctive; D. fruhstorferi   with long vulvar scales ( Fig. 3f) in contrast to D. truncus   which has short, truncated vulvar scales ( Fig. 3h).

Distribution: China (Fujian, Guangdong, Guangxi, Guizhou, Henan, Hubei, Hunan, Jiangsu, Jiangxi, Sichuan, Yunnan, Zhejiang), Thailand and Vietnam.
