Margattea limbata Bey-Beinko, 1954  

( Figs. 1–8 View FIGURES 1 – 8 )

Margattea limbata Bey-Bienko, 1954: 9  

Pronotum length width, 2.5 3.7mm; tegmen length, 7 mm; overall length, 9.5mm.

Yellowish brown. Head pale reddish brown with indistinct reddish brown band on vertex. Pronotal disk with a broad dark brown band, lateral border regions semi-hyaline. Legs dark brown.

Interocular space as wide as the distance between antennal sockets. Maxillary palps with the 3 rd segment slightly longer than the 4 th, both distinctly longer than the 5 th swollen segment. Tegmina and wings fully developed extending to apex of abdomen. Wings with subcostal and costal veins clubbed on distal halves, 7–9 bifurcated; median vein simple; cubitus vein with 5 complete branches, the median bifurcated, the distal very short, apical triangle small. The front femur Type B 2, tarsal claws symmetrical with subobsolete denticles on ventral margins. The eighth tergum of abdomen specialized with a group of setae near the posteromedian margin.

Supra-anal plate symmetrical, hind margin convex with a weak medial indentation. Subgenital plate weakly asymmetrical, interstylar margin convex and round, two styles slender and longer than width between them, distal halves slightly curved, left phallomere larger with 2 long spine-like processes; median phallomere curved and slim; base portion of accessory median sclerite brush-like; right phallomere with apex acute.

Specimens examined: 1 male, China: Yunnan province: Xishuangbanna: Mengzhe, 1200m, 10. vii. 1958, Coll. Wang Shu-Yong.

Comments: Bey-Bienko used a single female specimen as holotype to describe the species. He stated that it was close to Margattea longealata   ( Roth, 1989: 226, figs 64–72), with a dark brown spot on pronotal disk. The specimen examined above conforms to Bey-Bienko’s description, so we identify it as M. limbata   .

Distribution: China: Yunnan province.
