Longizonitis semirubra ( Pic, 1911) 

Zonitis semirubra Pic, 1911: 101  (originally described as Zonitis semiruber  , details see Pan et al. 2018). Type locality: “ Yunnan ”, China  . Type depository: MNHN.

Zonitis bomiensis Tan, 1988: 290  . Type locality: “ Yi’ong , Bomi, Xizang, China ”  . Type depository: IZCAS. syn. nov  .

Longizonitis semirubra: Pan et al. 2018: 47  .

Type material examined. Zonitis semirubra  : Holotype: ♀, “ P. Guerry // Roanne”, “ Yunnan ”, “ Zonitis  n. sp. ”, “ Z. semiruber Pic  ”, “TYPE” ( MNHN). 

Zonitis bomiensis  : Holotype: ♂, “ AÄṘṀƉÑ [ China, Xizang, Bomi, Yi’ong] // 2300 m // ƤDIJṳ lj [ Chinese Academy of Sciences ]”, “ 1983.VIII.26 // ṮƟð: ĦÞḇ [Han Yinheng leg.]”, “ HOLOTYPE ”, “IOZ(E)217536”, “ Zonitis bomiensis  sp. nov. ♂ // ẍaeð: ẠṚ± 1985 [Det. Tan Juanjie 1985]” ( IZCAS)  . Paratype: 1 ♀, “ AÄHẐ [ China, Xizang, Nyingchi] // 3000 m // ƤDIJṳlj [ Chinese Academy of Sciences ]”, “ 1983. VII.31 // ṮƟð: ĦÞḇ [Han Yinheng leg.]”, “ ALLOTYPE ”, “IOZ(E)217537” ( IZCAS)  .

Other material examined from China. XIZANG: 1 ♂ 2 ♀, Yadong, 2005.VII.22, Shi Aimin leg. ( MHBU)  ; 1 ♂ 1 ♀, Yadong, Xiayadong, 2017.VI.23, Qiu Jianyue & Xu Hao leg. ( MHBU)  .

Distribution. China:? Fujian, Yunnan, Xizang; India.

Remarks. The holotype and allotype of Zonitis bomiensis Tan, 1988  (IZCAS) show the same body configuration and coloration, length and shape of antennae, shape of head and pronotum, and punctures on the body as L. semirubra  (see figs 1–7 in Pan et al. 2018). Therefore, we establish Z. bomiensis  as a junior synonym of L. semirubra  .

The locality, Fujian, is in doubt (see Pan et al. 2018).
