status

 

Falconius longicornis Deng, Zheng & Wei, 2009 

Type material not examined, just the drawing of the holotype in Deng et al. (2009). Detailed drawing of the female hind tarsus and head in frontal view  made it easier to assess the species correctly.

Type locality: PR China: Guangxi: Luocheng: Qingmingshan 600 m a.s.l. 

Notes. From the photographs in the original paper, it is evident that the species belongs to the genus Falconius— distal segment of the hind tarsi is swollen in female. Antennal grooves, lateral  ocelli and frontal costa bifurcation are placed high. In contrast to other congeners, this species has strong and long ventrolateral directed outwards and backwards.
