Loboscelidia levigata  is one of three species described from southeastern China, including Loboscelidia sinensis  and Loboscelidia striolata  . It can be distinguished from these by the rectangular frontal projection, and in males R1 as long as R (shorter in Loboscelidia sinensis  and Loboscelidia striolata  ) and Rs 3 × as long as R, as opposed to 2.5 × or shorter in Loboscelidia sinensis  and Loboscelidia striolata  . It can be distinguished from other Loboscelidia  species by R1 reaching R at a right angle.
