Luciola substriata Gorham 1880: 100   ; 1895: 305. Olivier 1902 a: 86; 1913 a: 271; 1913 b: 59. Ho et al. 1997: 47. Ho, 2002: 50. Jeng et al. 2003: 539. Fu et al. 2005 a: 83; 2005 b: 501; 2009: 243.

Material examined. CHINA: Eleven first and six sixth instars bred from an original population of 12 males and four females collected from Xianjian village, Hongshan District, Wuhan City, Hubei Province. July 23, 2008 (NHMHAU).

Diagnosis. Dark brown well sclerotised metapneustic larvae with all body plates closely adpressed; mandibles lacking teeth; apical labial and maxillary palpomeres with sense organs along ventral surfaces; not possible to distinguish from larvae of L. aquatilis   .

Remarks. Ballantyne and Lambkin (2009) scored two different populations of males of this species from both mainland China and offshore China ( Taiwan) with results indicating morphological distinctiveness and two distinct species in an unresolved species complex within Luciola substriata   .
