Remarks

Having strong vertical bristles on male frons and modified claws on male fore tarsus, the species is close to Chinese species of the genus Sinosciapus Yang, 2002 ( Yang & Zhu 2011). However, the latter was diagnosed by two rather than one pairs of scutellar bristles, by one modified claw on the male fore tarsus rather than both claws modified.
