Material examined. Thailand: Nakhon Ratchasima, S Khao Luk Chang, elev. 400–475 m (14°31'50''N, 101°21'E), 28.viii.–6.x.1998, leg. I. Fritzsche— 1 female (Bonn ZFMK) GoogleMaps .

Description of female. Medium large, brachypterous species ( Fig. 47J View FIGURE 47 ). Head: Face ovoid; forehead nearly smooth with scattered impressed dots, in ventral area rather matt and with fine transverse riffles; fastigium verticis wider than scapus; ocelli distinct, yellowish white; fastigium frontis separated from fastigium verticis by a very fine suture; subocular furrows indistinct ( Fig. 48J View FIGURE 48 ). Abdominal tergites two and three without stridulatory pegs. Wings reaching to and partly covering fourth abdominal tergite.

Coloration. General color yellowish brown, head and legs reddish brown; pronotum with black rim and black bands along fore- and hind margins; abdominal tergites yellowish brown with black band along hind margin; abdominal sternites black on both sides with yellowish brown midline and apical area. Face red brown except for ivory white ocelli. Tegmen yellowish at base; semi-transparent along fore margin and in apical area; otherwise covered by a large black spot surrounding a yellowish spot in middle.

Male. See description in Gorochov et al. 2015.

Female. Seventh abdominal sternite as sixth sternite with hind margin roundly projecting in middle. Subgenital plate in basal half largely membranous except for margins and for the erected margins of a large oval groove at very base; apical half with converging lateral margins and a shallow medial furrow; tip bilobate ( Fig. 51G View FIGURE 51 ). Ovipositor elongate, substraight (very faintly curved down), with slightly converging margins; tip subobtuse ( Fig. 51I View FIGURE 51 ).

Measurements (1 female).—body w/wings: 35; body w/o wings: 35; pronotum: 7.5; tegmen: 16; hind femur: 20; ovipositor: 23 mm.

Discussion. The original description of this species was based on two males from near Sakaerat Environmental Research Station (14°30'32''N, 101°57'15''E) in Nakhon Ratchasima province, the female so far unknown. The female at hand was collected in a nearby area. Thus there is no doubt that it belongs to the same species.
