Diagnosis. The species is characterized by its broadly clavate gonostylus, with an apical tooth on the dorsal side, and two to three flagellate setae on the apical half; gonocoxite with a wide intercoxal lobe bearing long and dense setae on the ventral side; tegmen longer than wide and apically rounded, parameral apodeme continuously sclerotized forming a central strip on dorsal side; ventral inner side of gonocoxite with long setae; R1 significantly longer than R and extended to the base of the M-fork; eye bridge narrow with perpendicular frontal process and the ommatidia lost at the center ( Menzel & Mohrig, 2000).

Distribution. China (Tibet— new record; Fig. 16View FIGURE 16); Nepal (Simbhanjang), Burma (Kambaiti) ( Menzel & Martens, 1995; Menzel & Mohrig, 2000).

Remarks. This species was first recorded from Nepal and is new to China. The Chinese specimen shares the diagnostic characteristics, but slight differences were found (a broader gonocoxite and a narrower tegmen).
