Remarks.

Stark and Sivec (2008) originally described this species from Vietnam, and Mo et al. (2020a) described a new record in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. The terminalia and aedeagus of our specimen fit the original description of Stark and Sivec (2008).

Concluding remarks

Neoperla   was divided into the Neoperla clymene   group and the Neoperla montivaga   group by Zwick (1983). The N. clymene   species group currently includes more than 150 species, and the N. montivaga   species group includes over 123 species worldwide ( Huo et al. 2021; Mo et al. 2021a).

So far 11 species of Neoeprla   have been recorded from Yunnan Province, including the two new species and one species newly recorded in this paper. Among the six endemic species of Neoperla   , including the two new species listed below- N. lihuae   , N. yanlii   , N. obscurofulva   , N. yunnana   , N. hájeki, and N. gaoligongshana   -three of them are distributed in Baoshan City. Five species are widely distributed: N. cavaleriei   , N. diehli   , N. hubleyi   , N. limbatella   , and N. lui   . Neoperla binodosa   Wu, 1973 was transferred to the genus Phanoperla   and is placed as a synonym of P. pallipennis   Banks, 1938 by Mo et al. (2021c). Most species are distributed in western and southeastern Yunnan Province and central and northern Yunnan still needs to be surveyed (Fig. 7 View Figure 7 ).
