status

 

Falconius undatifemura Zheng & Wang, 2006 

Type material was not examined. According to OSF, the type series includes holotype female. Probably two female specimens reported by Deng (2016) from Jinghong represent holotype and paratype of the species.

Type locality: SC China: Yunnan: Jinghong. 

Notes. Since we did not examine drawings, photographs of specimens of this species, we cannot make any conclusions. According to the key presented in Deng et al. (2009) and Deng (2016), the species is related to F. hainanensis  . It has a lot of projections at the dorsum of pronotum, wide vertex, and antennae inserted at the level of the lower margins of the compound eyes. This description is doubtful and we are not sure if the species is rightly assigned to the genus.
