Acrocera paitana (Séguy) 

Paracrocera paitana Séguy, 1956: 177  . ♀ holotype. Type deposition: unknown (not MNHN or TMNH). Type locality: “ Chine boréale, Tche-li, Paita ” [= PR China, Beijing Municipality, Yanqing County, Longqing Gorge, Paita temple, 13.VIII. 1930].

Remarks. Séguy (1956) received the material from Émile Licent, founder of the Tianjin Museum of Natural History ( TMNH), formerly Museum Hoang ho-Pai ho or Beijiang Museum. The type locality Longqing Gorge is situated about 80 km northwest of Beijing and 10 km north-northeast of Yanqing at approximately 116 °0' 9 "E 40 ° 32 ' 37 "N. The female holotype could not be found at TMNH or in the main collection of MNHN. Acrocera paitana  is closest to A. orbiculus  , but a reliable differentiation from the latter based on Séguy’s (1956) diagnosis is not possible. Chances are that it also represents an additional synonym of A. orbiculus  . The species is not included in Nartshuk (1988).
