Material examined

Twenty specimens were collected from Ningshan County, 18 specimens from Mount Taibai   .


This species was reported as a new record for China from Hainan Island and Hebei Province (Rahm 1936–1937b, 1937). It was subsequently reported from Sechuan Province and Yunnan Province ( Beasley et al. 2006). My specimens fit the description of Claxton’s monograph ( Claxton 1998).
