Similar species in North China. This species is very similar in its yellow-banded colour pattern to B. longipennis   and B. lucorum   (see the key; Figs 123 View FIGURES 122 – 123. 122 , 125 View FIGURES 124 – 125. 124 , 133 View FIGURES 132 – 133. 132 ).

Distribution in China. Shanxi, Neimenggu, Heilongjiang, Xinjiang (IAB).
