China: Chongqing municipality: data of type series as inRůžička et al. (2004: 116); Hubei Province: 8 males and 8 females, Wufeng County, Houhe N. R. [ca. 30°33'N, 108°55'E ], 30.IV.2004, Li-Zhen Li leg. (1 pair in JRUC, rest in SHNU); Hunan Province: 3 males, Longshan Xian, Huoyan Xiang, Huoyan, entrance to Feihu Dong cave [ca. 29°12'N, 109°18'E ], 20.IX.1997, Y. Nishikawa leg. (1 male JRUC, 2 males NSMT).
Aedeagus has distinctly triangular, sub-sinuate apex in dorsal view in specimens from the type locality (Růžička et al. 2004: 117, Fig. 3), and straight apex with narrower tip in dorsal view in males from Hubei and Hunan Provinces (Fig. 11). Posterior margin of female ventrite VIII in specimens of Hubei Province is regularly rounded (Fig. 12), not distinctly truncate as observed in specimens from the type locality (Růžička et al. 2004: 117, Fig. 10). However, we consider variability of both characters to fall within variability range of the same species.
