Material studied.

China: Sichuan: 1 ♀, Dayi County, Xiling Xueshan, 30°41'59"N, 103°12'10"E, 2150 m, 29.VII.2015, Jiang, Peng, Tu & Zhou leg. (SNUC).


This species is similar and probably closely related to Lobrathium daxuense  Assing, 2012. The female represents an undescribed species distinguished from its congeners particularly by the light brown coloration, large body size (8.34 mm), much denser punctation of the head, a slender pronotum, and the female secondary sexual characters.
