Holotype male: Thailand: Nan Prov., Doi Phu Kha NP, 19°12'418"N, 101°4'809"E, 1326 m, MT, 15-22 Sept. 2007, Charoen & Nikom, T3217 (QSBG).

Diagnosis.

Loboscelidia fulva  is one of five species with a straight medial vein, including Loboscelidia meifungae  , Loboscelidia maculata  , Loboscelidia ora  and Loboscelidia defecta  . It can be distinguished from Loboscelidia ora  and Loboscelidia maculata  by having notauli, from Loboscelidia defecta  by having the cu-a vein one-half or more as long as R and Cu+M as long as A, and from Loboscelidia meifungae  by the rectangular frontal projection, Rs about 3 × as long as R and the scutellum coarsely areolate (smooth to longitudinally striate in Loboscelidia meifungae  ).
