Diagnosis.

Loboscelidia reducta  is one of the species, including Loboscelidia incompleta  , Loboscelidia bakeri  , Loboscelidia fulgens  and Loboscelidia ganxiensis  , that have a rectangular frontal projection (Fig. 15), complete notauli, greatly reduced or absent cu-a vein and no medial vein (Fig. 34). It can be distinguished from them by the absence of fore, mid and hindtibial flanges (Fig. 45). This species bears a superficial resemblance to species of Rhadinoscelidia  .
