Type material examined. Denierella venerabilis  : Paratypes: 1 ♂, “ Naga hills // Assam ”, “ Butler ”, “Ind. Mus.”, “Naga Hills. // captor Butler ”, “ Hypreauta venerabilis Wellman  // Type ”, “ Paratypus // 1955 // Denierella venerabilis Kaszab  ” ( HNHM; Fig. 11View FIGURES 9–12)  ; 1 ex., “ Naga hills // Assam ”, “ Butler ”, “Ind.

Denierella striolata  : Holotype: ♂, “ 2006.VIII.6 // ñRḎử¶Əâ [ China, Yunnan, Jinghong, Wild Elephant Valley ] // ḤṬḦṮ [Yang Yuxia leg.] // ṄükṳMUm [Museum of Hebei University]”, “ HOLOTYPE // Denierella striolata ” (MHBU)    . Paratypes: 65 exx., “ 2006.VIII.6 // ñRḎử¶Əâ [ China, Yunnan, Jinghong, Wild Elephant Valley ] // ḤṬḦṮ [Yang Yuxia leg.] // ṄükṳMUm [Museum of Hebei University]”, “ PARATYPE // Denierella striolata  ”( MHBU; Fig. 12View FIGURES 9–12)  .

Other material examined from China. YUNNAN: 1 ♂ 1♀, Mt. Kongming (Elev. 2150 m), 1957.IX.20, Zang Lingchao leg. ( HNHM)  .

Distribution. China: Yunnan; India: Assam, Thailand.

Remarks. Batelka & Hájek (2015) discussed the morphological identity of Denierella striolata  and Epicauta thailandica  , transferred E. thailandica  to the genus Denierella  , and pointed out that D. striolata  is a junior synonym of D. thailandica  .

Yang & Ren (2007a) considered that D. striolata  differs from D. venerabilis  by “more parts of the body with long black setae…; male antennomere II three times as long as wide, X shorter than III; pronotum longer than wide, hardly depressed at base; median longitudinal light pubescent stripe nearly extending to the apex of elytron, and as broad as that along outer margin”. According to the examination of the type material of both taxa (see above), we discovered that D. venerabilis  has the same features of D. striolata  . Thus, we considered D. striolata  and E. thailandica  are junior synonyms of D. venerabilis  .
