( Figs. 1View FIGURE 1, 3View FIGURES 3 – 4)

Lannapsyche setschuana Malicky 1995b: 25  –26. Type locality: Si-chuan (China).

Our specimens were collected from North China (Oriental-East Palearctic boundary). The male genitalia of the specimens are closely congruent with those of Lannapsyche setschuana  specimens from Central (Oriental) China, Si-chuan Province (Jin-lang Tai, W. Cheng-du). For clear comparisons, the male genitalia are re-illustrated and redescribed.

Redescription: Adult. Length of each male forewing 11.0– 11.2 mm (n = 4). Specimens in alcohol generally dark brown, warts on head and thorax yellow. Mesal setal wart present on first segment of each maxillary palp ( Fig. 1EView FIGURE 1). Wing venation very similar to that of Lannapsyche chantaramongkolae  and, in each forewing forks I, II, III, and V present; forks I, II, and V sessile, fork III petiolate; and single anal vein with row of bristles ventrally (similar to Fig. 5View FIGURE 5 Fa), however R1 not unusually close to R2 distally, R4 not as strongly curved anterad, and apical distances between R2–R3 and R3–R4 less than between R4–R5; in each hind wing, R1 confluent with R2 shortly after end of Sc (as in Fig. 5View FIGURE 5 Fp) and short crossvein r -m present between R5 and MA ( Malicky 1995b, fig. on p. 25).

Male genitalia Pleura IX each divided by longitudinal oblique groove into dorsal and ventral parts ( Fig. 1AView FIGURE 1, long. gr.); in lateral view on each side, anterior margin of segment IX dorsally and ventrally concave leaving rounded production at anterior end of longitudinal groove about 1/3 distance from ventral margin; lateromedian apical lobe of IX at posterior end of longitudinal groove produced in 90° angle about 1/3 distance from dorsal margin ( Fig. 1A, l.mView FIGURE 1.lob.) Tergum IX produced posteromesally into narrow triangular lobe, about 2 times as long as its basal width in dorsal view ( Fig. 1B, tView FIGURE 1.IX). Sternum IX deeply concave anteriorly and broadly concave posteriorly in ventral view ( Fig. 1C, sView FIGURE 1.IX). Preanal appendages present as convex, setose areas, merged with sides of mesal projection of segment IX and base of segment X ( Figs. 1A, 1BView FIGURE 1, Segment X forming pair of broad, rhomboid lobes, tapering from mid length to apices in lateral view ( Fig. 1A, t.XView FIGURE 1), dorsal edges of these lobes each expanding laterad to form pair of elongate plates, each about 4 times as long as its average width and with triangular subbasolateral projection in dorsal view ( Fig. 1B, t.XView FIGURE 1), median cleft between lobes 6/7 as long as tergum X and pleural portions of segment X not visible when viewed dorsally. Inferior appendages with coxopodite parallel-sided, stout, and straight in lateral view, each with length between base of coxopodite and its subapical lobes about 2 times its width, subapicodorsal lobe about 2 times as long as subapicoventral lobe ( Fig. 1AView FIGURE 1,, sub.d.lob., sub. v.lob  .); harpago broadly triangular, embedded between subapical lobes of coxopodite in lateral view ( Fig. 1AView FIGURE 1, har.), wider apex thickly covered caudally with short, black, triangular setae, setae-bearing area elongated in kidney shape, with mesal margin slightly concave in ventral view ( Fig. 1CView FIGURE 1, har.). Phallus almost as long as inferior appendages; phallobase highly sclerotized, constricted at 1/3 distance from base, with distal 2/3 curving backward and bulged in cup shape, fused ventrally with lightly sclerotized phallicata ( Fig. 1DView FIGURE 1, ph.b., ph.c.), in ventral view bulged portion much broader than base ( Fig. 1EView FIGURE 1); ejaculatory duct and phallotremal sclerite conspicuous ( Fig. 1DView FIGURE 1, ph.scl.), phallotremal sclerite elongate with U-shaped opening in ventral view.

Female genitalia. Segments IX and X and gonopods VIII and IX all firmly united and much sclerotized, dark brown. In dorsal view, anterior parts of tergite IX ( Fig. 3BView FIGURES 3 – 4, tIXa+IXb) short mesally with median length about 1/5 length of lateral margins. Posterior part of tergite IX and tergum X ( Fig. 3B, tView FIGURES 3 – 4.IXc+X) deeply divided into pair of lobes, each apical lobe gradually narrowing to subtruncate apex, about 1/2 as broad as basal width; apical setae black, long and straight, about as long as apical lobes; width between apical portions of two apical lobes almost 2 times width of each lobe itself. In lateral view, dorsal margins of IXc+X forming continuing concave line, with apex of IXc+X tilting upward; on each side, longitudinal lower lateral margin of anterior parts of tergite IX ( Fig. 3A, tView FIGURES 3 – 4.IXa+IXb) almost truncate. In ventral view, spermathecal sclerite of processus spermathecae ( Fig. 3CView FIGURES 3 – 4, sper.scl.) slightly narrowed at anterior distal 1/6 with flat apex; posteriorly this sclerite ending in 2 darkly sclerotized acute structures. On subgenital plate ( Fig. 3CView FIGURES 3 – 4, = fused external gonopods VIII and IX, or e.gon.VIIIa+VIIIb+IX), grey band forming posteriorly open square around region below spermathecal sclerite.
