Rhoenanthus magnificus Ulmer, 1920: 11   , Fig. 9 View FIGURE 9 (male, female, subimago). Types: Male , female, male subimago, Vietnam and China (but the materials from China were renamed as R. youi   by Bae & McCafferty 1991: 22–23).

Rhoenanthus magnificus: Ulmer 1926: 100   ; Wu 1935: 249.

Neopotamanthodes lanchi Hsu, 1938: 221   , Figs 44–45 (male, female, types lost); Gui 1985: 91; You & Gui 1995: 127, Fig. 135 (male subimago, female). Synonymized by Bae & McCafferty 1991: 22.

Rhoenanthus (Potamanthindus) magnificus: Nguyen & Bae 2004: 10   , Fig. 1 View FIGURE 1 (nymph description, Vietnam); Nguyen & Bae 2006: 21.

Diagnosis: Male adults of this species can be distinguished from other Rhoenanthus (Potamanthindus)   species by relatively longer foretibiae (about 1.4x length of forefemora and about 2.0x length of foretarsi); variously stained markings throughout the forewing; genitalia V-shaped, and slightly notched apically on penes ( Fig. 9 View FIGURE 9 ). The nymphs of this species have relatively shorter bent mandibular tusks, with basal spines only.

Remarks: Ulmer (1920 a) reported male and female adults collected at Chenghu ( China) as Rhoenanthus magnificus   . Therefore, this species have been listed and cited by all following Chinese researchers. However, Bae & McCafferty (1991) rechecked these materials and attributed them to R. youi   . Types of another synonym of this species, Neopotamanthodes lanchi Hsu, 1938   were lost during the second world war.

Distribution: Vietnam, China (Guizhou, Zhejiang).

Materials examined: 6♀♀, Sanglang Town , Wangmo County, Guizhou Province, China, collected by Changfa ZHOU and Chuanren LI, 16-IX-2000   ; 1♀ subimago, 13-IX-1994;   2♂♂ subimagoes, Libo County, Guizhou Province, China, 6-VII-1994, collected by Yuzhou DU   .
