- Trichiocampus yunanensis Haris & Roller, 1999: 231–232.
Female (Fig. 7). Body length 7 mm (excluding antenna, cerci and sheath). Body orange, extreme narrow margin of antennal socket, propleuron, parapsis of mesothorax largely, narrow posterior margin of mesoscutellum, parapsis of metanotum, posterior of metascutellum, ventral half of mesopleuron, ventral margin of metapleuron, black; legs black, apical 1/3 of fore femur, all tibiae and tarsi yellow brown. Wings hyaline, apical third weakly infuscate, vein C pale brown, other veins and pterostigma black brown, anterior breadth of a feebly defined smoky macula about half length of pterostigma. Body hairs silver brown.
Body shiny, dorsal side of pronotum distinctly punctured, dorsal half of mesopleuron distinctly microsculptured (Fig. 9). Clypeus distinctly and roundly emarginated to about half length of clypeus (Fig. 10); malar space about 1.15 × diameter of lateral ocellus; postocellar area flat, 2.2 × as broad as long, with a deep middle fovea and a shallow middle furrow, posterior of postocellar area not declined; postocellar furrow broad and shallow; lateral furrows deep and very broad, weakly divergent backwards; temple flat; frontal basin shallow, 1.1 × as broad as long, with depth about 0.13 × breadth of basin; frontal walls distinctly elevated, not very sharp (Fig. 8); distance between eyes at level of antennal sockets 1.8 × wider than greater diameter of eye. Antenna stout, 1.2 × length of abdomen, much shorter than thorax and abdomen together, tapering towards apex (Fig. 7). Prepectus, epicnemium and dorsal part of mesepisternum as Fig. 9. Claw with inner tooth clearly shorter and slightly broader than outer tooth (Fig. 11). Forewing: cell 2Rs slightly shorter than 1Rs, vein cu-a joining cell 1M at middle. Cerci and apical sheath in dorsal view as Fig. 12, cerci about 3.5 × as long as broad, not beyond apex of sheath. Lancet slender, with 14 annuli and 16 serrulae, annuli simple, without annular teeth (Fig. 13).
1♀, holotype: “China, Yunan [Yunnan], 24-29. VI. 93, 50 km N. of Lijieng [Lijiang], Yulongshan, Nat. Res., E. Jednek, O. Sausa leg.” (HNHM); 1 female, “Xiaozhongdian, Shangri-La, Yunnan, China, alt. 3000m, 19 July 2004, Xiao Wei coll.” (CSCS).
This species is easily separated from the other Anhoplocampa species by the orange body; antenna stout and much shorter than body; forewing with a weak cross band below pterostigma; postocellar area not declined and with deep and broad lateral furrows; the upper half of mesopleuron distinctly microsculptured; cerci shorter; clypeus deeply incised; claw with inner tooth clearly shorter than outer tooth; cu-a of fore wing meeting cell 1M at about middle; and female lancet slender with 14 simple annuli.
Haris and Roller (1999) placed this species in Trichiocampus. However, left mandible in lateral view bearing a strongly swollen base and narrowing to a thin blade-like apex, the long vein R+M, the narrow and strongly elevated epicnemium with a deep and strongly curved furrow, and the distinctly carinate frontal walls show that it is member of Anhoplocampa and does not belong to Trichiocampus.
The weak cross-band of the forewing, the comparatively short antenna, the short cerci, the slender lancet with simple annuli, the flat temple and postocellar area of Anhoplocampa yunanensis show that it is morphologically remote from Anhoplocampa bicoloricornis and Anhoplocampa fumosa.
